Request/Replace a Trash Bin

The Town provides and maintains, in partnership with refuse contractor All American Waste, an inventory of trash and recycling collection bins for the residences and businesses of Hamden. (Not including condo associations)

The existing limitations for collection bins per household are ONE trash receptacle (96 gallon or 64 gallon) and TWO recycling receptacles (96 gallon or 64 gallon). At this time, the Town is focused on replacing receptacles which have broken or have been destroyed.**

To request a new receptacle, or to have your current receptacle repaired, please contact Recycling and Solid Waste Coordinator, Joseph DeRisi, directly at 203-287-7021 or by email at

**Due to extensive replacement volumes, requests will be handled in the order of which they are received. (All replacements/deliveries pending available stock.)
