First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced that The Department of Public Works Field Operations will provide a two-week collection program for bulk items for the weeks of September 12th and September 19th that will be collected at the curb after the regular sanitation collection has been completed. Residents can place items at the curb by 5 a.m. on their designated trash collection day.
Bulk items include large upholstered items (sofas, chairs, mattresses, box springs, love seats, sectionals and reclining chairs); appliances or “white goods” (washers, dryers, refrigerators, ranges, and dish washers) and scrap metals (curtain rods, bicycles, metal tables, metal ladders, lawn mowers, metal grills, air conditioners, etc).
Note that wood items are not considered bulk. Wood items, including wooden chairs, tables, bookcases, etc., can be incinerated and therefore can be picked up along with weekly curbside sanitation collection as long as wooden pieces are smaller than four feet.
Electronics such as televisions, stereos, computers, copiers, fax machines, etc., must be brought to the Recycling Center, located on Elm Street, adjacent to the North Haven Racquet Club. By law, electronics must be recycled and the Recycling Center is available to all North Haven residents.
“The curbside bulk pick up program displays one of many ways the Department of Field Operations is invested in the citizens of North Haven.” First Selectman Michael Freda stated. “It is an important service that the Town is pleased to continue to provide to its residents.”
