First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced today that effective Monday, April 2, 2012, the Town’s
Department of Public Works will provide a two-week curbside collection program for bulk items to the residents of North Haven. Bulk items are defined as large upholstered items (couches, chairs,
mattresses, box springs, love seats, sectionals and recliner chairs); appliances (washers, dryers,
refrigerators, ranges and dish washers) and scrap metals (curtain rods, bicycles, metal tables, metal ladders, lawn mowers, metal grills, air conditioners, etc.).
Residents are encouraged to place bulk items for pick-up at the curb along with their regular
sanitation and recycling containers on their designated sanitation collection day.
Please note that wood items are not considered bulk. Wood items, including wooden chairs, tables, bookcases, etc., can be incinerated and therefore will be picked up along with your weekly curbside sanitation collection.
Electronics such as televisions, stereos, computers, copiers, fax machines, etc. must be brought to the Town’s Recycling Center, which is located on Elm Street adjacent to the North Haven Racquet Club. Electronics by law must be recycled and disposal for all North Haven residents is available at no cost.
“The Town and it’s Department of Public Works continues to be committed to providing the best quality of customer service it can given the biannual bulk collection schedule”, Freda stated.
Further information on the curbside bulk pick-up program may be obtained by contacting the Department of Public Works at (203) 239-5321, extension 750.
