There will be changes to what items are accepted

STAMFORD, CT – The City of Stamford’s Recycling and Sanitation Department today announced the expected closure of the City’s Transfer Station for the rehabilitation and repair of the floor. The estimated period of the closure is Tuesday, August 28, 2018 – Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

The City’s household collection of garbage and recycling will not be affected.

The Transfer Station will still accept the following items during the closure: yard waste, leaves, refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and tires. As always, there will be a charge if the weight exceeds 200 pounds. There is a $12 charge on Freon items.

The City’s Recycling Center, located at 130 Magee Avenue, will remain open with its regular hours of 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Monday – Saturday. Residents in a passenger vehicle can bring up to 200 pounds a day of household garbage to the Recycling Center, including household furniture like mattresses, couches and chairs. If the household waste weighs over 200 pounds (including bulky waste), residents will need to drop it off at a private contracting company. City Carting, located at 8 Viaduct Road, will accept such items for a fee.

The City will again hold the monthly bulky waste drop-off at the Scofieldtown Yard. These drop-offs are scheduled for September 1st, October 6th, and November 3rd. Additional dates may be announced, so residents are encouraged to check the City’s website for updates.

Any updates will be listed on the City’s website,, and on the City’s Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor accounts.
