City provides instructions on bulky waste collection

Got junk that’s too big for your rubbish barrel? You can get a curbside bulk collection if you have city rubbish service. Curbside bulk collections must be scheduled in advance by calling Public Works at (860)584-6125. Landlords/property managers must call to schedule a bulk collection for multi-family buildings.
Large items may not be placed at the curb more than 24 hours before a scheduled collection, or can result in a fine per city ordinance.
More information on bulk collection service is available on the web site at
Leaf bag collection concluded in April. Leaf bags will not be collected again until the fall. Residents with leaf bags may bring them to the Transfer Station or hold them until the fall collection season. Yard Waste subscription service (green barrels) is also available, see for more information.
