Bear proof barrels: We have a limited number of bear proof barrels available. There is a one-time fee for use of the barrel. If interested, contact Public Works at 860-653-8960.

Out by 6: Please remember that trash and recycling barrels need to be at curbside by 6 a.m. on your scheduled day of pick up. Please do not assume that the truck will arrive at the “usual time.” Routes start at 6 a.m. and the time it takes to get to your home can vary due to a number of factors.

When at the curb your barrels should be at least two feet apart to allow for clearance of the automatic arm of the truck.

Road work: Town crews will be out repairing roads this spring. Please drive carefully and take extra caution when passing work crews.

DPW updates: For updates on the transfer station and other DPW events, check the website, or the Facebook page, Granby CT Department of Public Works.
