First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced today that effective Monday, April 1, 2013, 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 by 5:00 a.m. 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 is available for all North Haven residents at no cost.
“The Town and its Department of Public Works continues to be committed to providing the best quality of customer service and will continue to do so with the successful bi-annual bulk collection schedule”, First Selectman 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 400.
