In an effort to increase disposal options for Glastonbury residents while considering the health and safety of town residents and staff, the Glastonbury Refuse Disposal Division is expanding the current Transfer Station schedule to include an additional day. Effective Thursday, May 7, the Transfer Station will be open on Thursdays, in addition to the current Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday schedule, for select recyclables only. Beginning May 7, residents may recycle only the following items at the Transfer Station on Thursdays between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:

  • Scrap Metal
  • Textiles
  • Automotive Batteries
  • Used Oil / Oil Filters & Anti-Freeze
  • Mattresses & Box Springs
  • Electronics
  • Leaves & Grass Clippings*  
  • NO trash/recycling accepted on these days!

ONLY the items shown above will be accepted on Thursdays, with the exception of leaves and grass clippings (*leaves/grass are accepted on all days the facility is open). The above mentioned items are NOT accepted on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays therefore the Thursday schedule and limited item allowance is designed to help accommodate resident disposal needs. Please note, staff will NOT be available to assist with off-loading items due to social distancing guidelines. Social distancing requirements will be enforced and all Transfer Station visitors are required to wear face masks or cloth coverings per the Governor’s Executive Orders. If you do not have a face mask and are unable to acquire one, you may request one from Glastonbury Social Services. Click here to submit an electronic request form for a mask made by volunteers.

Accepted items and hours for the remaining days of the week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays), will remain unchanged. A weekly schedule for both the Transfer Station and Bulky Waste Facility are available below for your convenience, or you can click here to view a downloadable/printable version of the Facility Schedules to save/print for future reference during the COVID-19 pandemic.
