Household Hazardous Waste: Granby will again partner with local towns to host hazardous waste collections. The first collection will be Saturday, April 25, 8 a.m.–1 p.m. at 10 Monteith Drive, Farmington. For a list of accepted items, check the Public Works page at granby-ct.gov. During 2020, there will be two additional hazardous waste collections held in Simsbury.
Street sweeping: Weather permitting, street sweeping of development roads will begin the week of April 20.
Yard waste: Yard waste is banned from disposal in your curbside barrels. Grass and leaves are accepted free of charge at the transfer station. Brush is accepted for a fee; the charge is based on the size of the load. If possible, compost yard waste on site.
Recycling: If you have questions regarding recycling, visit recyclect.com. Try the recycling wizard—a tool that allows you to ask about a specific item. If you still have questions, call Public Works, 860-653-8960.
Do not bag your recycling: Plastic bags and plastic film are a major source of contamination for the recycling plant. No plastic bags should go in your bin. To see how to recycle plastic film, visit plasticfilmrecycling.org.
Bulky waste: You cannot dispose of large items in your curbside barrel. This includes items such as rugs, chairs, wood, etc. These items can cause issues for the trash truck. Bulky items may be brought to the Granby Transfer Station or you can arrange for a curbside pickup for a fee; call Paine’s, Inc., at 860- 844-3000.
