The new fee schedule for West Hartford’s Yard Waste and Recycling Center went into effect on March 1, 2017.
Submitted by the Town of West Hartford
West Hartford’s annual Yard Waste and Recycling Center permits are available for purchase at 25 Brixton St. (the former incinerator building) operated by Supreme Forest Products beginning on March 1, 2017.
This year a new fee schedule was adopted to simplify and streamline the permit processing. A “Club Fee” schedule allows all West Hartford residents to use the site and cuts down the type of permits issued from 14 to four.
All vehicles except trucks and full size vans without trailers will be charged $10.00 per year ($15.00 with trailer). Trucks and full size vans will be charged $25.00 per year ($35.00 with trailer). Day passes will no longer be available. The fee charged is for the administration of the facility.
Over the past year additional recycling opportunities were added to reduce the high cost of waste disposal and provide sustainable waste programs. These recycling programs include the recycling of paint, electronics, textiles, mattresses and box springs. A film plastic drop off site is also planned for the spring of 2017.
The Yard Waste and Recycling Center hours through the end or March are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. There are no Saturday hours until April 1, when the hours will be Monday through Friday 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The Yard Waste and Recycling Center is not open on Sundays.
Here’s a look at what West Hartford’s residents can expect:
Passenger Vehicles, SUVs, CUVs, and Minivans w/o trailer – $ 10.00
