Transfer Station hours:In addition to Saturdays, the transfer station will be open Wednesday 8 a.m. to noon through Nov. 18.
Shred-it event:A paper shredding event will be held Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. This event is for residents only, no businesses. Documents are shredded on-site. Plastic bags cannot go into the shredder so please bring items in paper bags or in containers that can be emptied into the barrels
Household Hazardous waste collection:Saturday, Oct. 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Simsbury DPW facility, 66 Town Forest Road. A list of accepted items is available on the Town of Granby website. The following additional services will be provided: Electronics recycling (items with Freon not accepted) and document shredding, special hours 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. or until truck is full. Two box limit per resident. For information on either event, call the Granby DPW at 860-653-8960.
Plastic bag recycling:Plastic bags, wraps and mailers are recyclable but not in your curbside bin. When you place these items in your curbside bin, they get wrapped up in the equipment at the recycling facility, workers have to stop the machines and climb onto the equipment to cut off the bags. Please look for the Store Drop Off label and take your bags/wraps with this label to your local store.
Along the same lines, please do not place your recyclables in plastic bags. Once the bag reaches the processing plant, they will assume it is trash and remove it from the recycling line. You’re wasting your recycling effort by doing this.
Yard Waste: Yard waste is not allowed in your trash or recycling barrels—it has been banned from curbside barrels since 1998. Grass, leaves and brush should be composted on-site or brought to the Granby Transfer Station.
