Mayor Garrett encourages residents to re-engage with our environment this Earth Day season, commenting, " Hamden is moving forward with more sustainable practices including reducing energy use, reducing our trash, and engaging the community in a town wide effort towards a more sustainable environment."
An active earth day committee that includes the Mayor's office, Public Works, Commission representatives and Hamden citizens is helping to lesson the "footprint" of the earth day event itself, while developing new engaging activities for residents.
We will be taking orders for home composters again this year. Last year residents purchased over 100 home composters and rain barrels at less than the retail price . Through a program offered by The South Central Council of Governments, Hamden is able to offer 80 gallon composters for a reduced price again this spring. Pickup of pre-ordered items will be on April 23rd, from 1:30 -3:30 pm. If you have any questions about this , call the recycling coordinator at 203-287-7021.
All events exhibitors and attractions are posted under the Exhibitors and and Events tab in the left column, posted as they are confirmed.
