Special Storm Brush & Tree Limb Clean-up Ongoing, October Bulk Trash Collection Discontinued

Hamden – The Town continues to conduct special brush and tree limb cleanups in the wake of tropical storm Isaias and the recent tornado which touched down and passed through Hamden in late August. Public Works crews remain committed to full-scale removal efforts throughout the Town and are managing an enormous amount of debris across neighborhoods in Hamden. Public Works appreciates the patience and understanding of residents as the removal of storm debris is completed. 

Residents who have already had their brush piles collected should understand that any further bundles for disposal will be the responsibility of the home-owner and will not be collected by Public Works. The Department continues to operate on a “single-pass-through” policy, and as such, residents should ensure their brush is curbside as quickly as possible, if not already. Please note that Public Works will only accept brush and tree limbs of manageable size, stumps and tree trunks will not be accepted. Grass and construction debris will not be accepted. The Town’s annual fall Leaf & Brush pickup program will begin November 2nd, and until that time, residents are asked to only place storm debris curbside. 

Residents seeking an alternate disposal option may bring their debris to the Hamden Transfer Station, 231 Wintergreen Ave, Monday through Friday from 7:30 – 11:30am and 12:30 – 3:00pm. The Transfer Station is currently closed on Saturdays. As a reminder, the October Bulk Trash collection program has been eliminated from the FY2020-2021 Budget and will not occur this year. RESIDENTS SHOULD NOT PUT BULK TRASH ITEMS BY THE CURB. 

If you have any questions regarding this pick-up schedule, please contact Public Works at 203-287-2600
