RESIDENTIAL & BUSINESS TRASH
Trash/Garbage shall mean every accumulation of animal, vegetable or other matter that attends the preparation, consumption, decay, dealing in or storage of meats, fish, fowl, birds, fruit, vegetables, beverages or other edibles, including the non-recyclable containers or wrappers disposed of along with such materials.
Residents can bring trash and garbage (and recyclables) to the Holly Hill Resource Recovery Facility (transfer station). You will need a vehicle dumping permit decal which can be obtained at no charge at the Holly Hill scale house by showing proof of residency and car ownership.
Residents and business owners are responsible for separating the waste generated-not the refuse collector. The Town encourages residents and businesses to communicate directly with their collector concerning special arrangements or clarification of services provided for removal of refuse and recyclables. In the event that further assistance is required please contact the Waste Disposal Division.
Licensed Waste Haulers are allowed to remove trash and discarded materials (including recyclables) between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Both residences and businesses must comply with requirements regarding separation and proper storage of discarded materials.

After all the recyclables have been removed, the rest is taken to a local waste-to-energy facility. The trash is incinerated at high temperature and converted to electricity. The remaining materials go to the ash landfill. All of Connecticut's MSW (trash) is incinerated for 1% of Connecticut's total energy needs.
