Monroe reminds residents of bulk waste pickup program
MONROE — After several severe winters, the town has revised its bulk waste pickup program.
The program will no longer run through the winter months. Instead, pickups are in the spring, from March through May, and in the fall, from September through November.
Reservations are accepted throughout the year. Pickups are scheduled by appointment only and happen in a weekly basis during the spring and fall, depending on the weather conditions.
A pickup can be scheduled by filling out a service request at www.monroect.org or by calling the Department of Public Works at 203-452-2814.
Residents should have all items separated in piles behind the curb no sooner than one week before pickup or, at the latest, by 7 a.m. the day of pickup.
The service is provided at no additional cost to the town’s residents. It is for items that cannot be disposed of in regular trash.
Each residence in town will be granted one pickup per household per year.
Some acceptable items are: furniture, refrigerators, rugs, mattresses, lawn mowers and bicycles.
Some items that won’t be accepted are: hazardous materials, recyclable materials, sheetrock, dead animals, clothes, logs, small electronics or oxygen.
Any questions about the service can be directed to public works.
