Bulky Waste

As of  January 1, 2018, all qualified residential properties 1 - 6 units, MUST SCHEDULE THE COLLECTION OF APPROVED BULKY ITEMS. Each residential property, is allotted two (2) free collections per unit, per year, of five (5) or fewer approved bulky items.  For example, a 3 family home is allotted 6 free collection per year.

Please call DPW at (860-757-4955 or (860) 757-9983 to schedule a collection.

All illegally dumped items should be reported to Hartford 311 by dialing 311 or submitting directly via the Hartford 311 app.

Residents with additional items for disposal can schedule additional collections at a cost of $75 per collection, or obtain a $10 permit (max 4 visits) and transport items to the transfer station directly.

BULKY items are large solid waste such as appliances, electronics, tree limbs, tires, furniture, mattresses and other items too large to fit reasonably in standard-issued collection containers.  Bulky waste does not include any hazardous or toxic materials.


The Hartford Bulky Waste & Recycling Center provide permits for residents and small business to drop off accepted materials. A permit is required to process material drop off. Currently the only payment accepted is money order, cashier check, and credit card. No personal checks accepted, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Permits can be purchased at 50 Jennings Rd on the second floor. Office is open Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm. Download a copy of the transfer station permit application.
