Bulky Waste

Bulky Waste Pick-Up 

Residents are allowed two (2) pick-ups per calendar year. You must call for a pick-up. If you do not call for a bulky waste pick-up, any bulky waste materials placed curbside will not be removed. The telephone number for arranging bulky waste collection is 860-423-4527. Bulky Waste pickups are intended for removal of a nominal amount of trash. A nominal amount is deemed to be that amount that would fit into the back of a small size pick-up truck. If you anticipate exceeding this amount you will need to make arrangements for a dumpster at your expense.

Material must be placed in accordance with the following guidelines and limitations. Improperly placed items will not be removed. Unless otherwise noted below, collection of bulky waste material will be on Mondays. Material must be placed
at the curb by 6:00 am. Items covered:

  • Household Furniture (including mattresses). Maximum of two (2) pieces per pick-up.
  • Scrap Wood. A neat pile of material not to exceed five (5) feet long, three (3) feet high, and five (5) feet wide. No Sheetrock/drywall or plaster.
  • White Goods (e.g., appliances). One (1) appliance per pick-up. Freon-bearing items must display a pickup decal available from Town Hall and Libraries, at the cost of $5.00. Metal appliances will be picked up on Fridays.
