First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced that Field Operations (Public Works) will provide a collection program for bulk items the last two full weeks of September (Sept. 19-23 and 26-30). Bulk waste will be collected at the curb after regular sanitation collection has been completed. Residents can place items at the curb by 5 a.m. on their designated trash collection day.
“The curbside bulk pick-up program displays one of many ways the Department of Field Operations is invested in the citizens of North Haven,” Freda stated. “It is an important service that the town is pleased to continue to provide to its residents.”
Bulk items allowed for disposal: large upholstered items (sofas, chairs, mattresses, box springs, love seats, sectionals, reclining chairs); appliances or “white goods” (washers, dryers, refrigerators, ranges, dish washers); and scrap metals (curtain rods, bicycles, metal tables, metal ladders, lawn mowers, metal grills, air conditioners).
Also, residents may bring mattresses to the Transfer Station at the intersection of Sackett Point Road and Universal Drive, Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Note that wood items are not considered bulk. Wood items, including chairs, tables, bookcases, etc., can be disposed of curbside with weekly waste as long as the pieces are smaller than four feet. However, this does not include wooden boards/planks, which should be brought to the Recycling Center at 90 Elm St.
Brush/yard waste also can be brought to the Recycling Center. Branches tied up in small piles (3) can be disposed of curbside with weekly waste.
Electronics such as televisions, stereos, computers, copiers, fax machines, etc., must be brought to the Recycling Center.
