July 4th: There will be no changes to trash service due to the July 4th holiday.

Transfer Station closing: The Granby Transfer Station will be closed on Saturday, July 4.

Road paving: Each year the town focuses its paving resources on roadways that are in poor condition. This year various road resurfacing methods will be used to improve these roads. While work is in progress, you may experience delays or detours during your travels. The roads scheduled for repair are: Acorn Drive, Heather Lane, Nestor Way, Lost Acres Road, Harvey Drive, Elizabeth Street, Crest Road and Donahue Road.

Ashes: Do not put any ashes in your barrel. A single ash can remain “live” (still able to ignite) for up to 96 hours. If a barrel is melted or damaged by ashes, the cost of replacing the barrel will be the responsibility of the resident.

Bear 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

Textile recycling: Simple Recycling has restarted the textile collection program and is collecting pink bags. Put pink bags out next to your barrels on your recycling day.
