CRRA Facilities to Add Operating Hours This Weekend
Trash Disposal Vital to Storm Cleanup, Authority Says
HARTFORD, Conn. — Doing its part to help its cities and towns clean up following Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority will offer extra hours of operation at its transfer stations and disposal facilities on Saturday, Nov. 3, and Sunday, Nov. 4.
Permitted haulers serving the 68 cities and towns of CRRA’s Mid-Connecticut Project will be able to deliver
Permitted haulers will also be able to deliver recyclables to CRRA’s Stratford recycling transfer station from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 3.
CRRA facilities cannot accept material delivered by residents.
Residents who need storm debris removed should contact their city or town public works department. CRRA has a list of those telephone numbers on its website.
“Many trash haulers lost two or more days of collecting because of the storm, so we’re happy to help them get caught up and, in the process, help our residents,” said Peter W. Egan, CRRA director of operations and environmental affairs. “Safely disposing of trash and recyclables will make it a little easier to complete all the other storm cleanup activities.”
The Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority is a quasi-public agency whose mission is to work for – and in – the best interests of the municipalities of the state of Connecticut. CRRA’s board of directors and management team develop and implement environmentally sound solutions and best practices for solid waste disposal and recycling management on behalf of municipalities.
