Independence Day: Thursday, July 4th is a holiday for Paine’s. All Thursday and Friday trash pickups will be delayed by one day.

Road resurfacing: Each year the town focuses its paving resources on roadways that are in poor condition. Various road resurfacing methods will be used to improve our roads. This summer, some type of preservation process will be completed on the following roads: Wells Road, Moose Horn Road, Vining Hill Road, Simsbury Road, Canton Road, Griffin Road and the town portion of West Granby Road.

Weather permitting, the work will begin in late July. Until that time please be aware of raised structures on the roadway. While work is in progress, please use caution and pay attention to flaggers directing traffic. For additional information and updates, please go to the Town of Granby website

Signs on the town green: Prior to placing a sign on any town property, approval must be received from the town manager’s office. The request form can be found under the Residents link on the Town of Granby website.

Ashes: Do not put any ashes in your trash barrel. A single ash can remain “live” and 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.

Extra Trash bags: are available at Granby Public Works, 52 North Granby Road from 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or from the Transfer Station attendant during Transfer Station hours.
