Transfer Station hours: In addition to Saturdays, the transfer station will be open Wednesday mornings (8 a.m. to noon) through Nov. 17.

Shred-it event: A paper shredding event will be held Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon. Documents are shredded on site. Plastic bags cannot go into the shredder—please bring items in paper bags or in containers which can be emptied into the barrels.

Household Hazardous Waste collection: Saturday, Oct. 16, 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. to 12:30 p.m. or until truck is full. Two box limit per resident. For information, call the Granby DPW at 860-653-8960.

Hungary Road Bridge: Due to unforeseen permitting issues, the work on Hungary Road Bridge has been delayed. It is anticipated the work will begin in January 2022.

Textile recycling: You can still recycle textiles curbside but you must contact Simple Recycling to schedule a pickup. It can be done online at or by calling 866-835-5068.

Plastic bag recycling: Plastic bags, wraps and mailers are recyclable—but not in your curbside bin! 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 simply wasting your recycling effort by doing this.

Yard Waste: Yard waste is not allowed in your trash or recycling barrels. Yard waste has been banned from curbside barrels since 1998. Grass, leaves and brush should be composted on-site or brought to the Granby Transfer Station.
