Update: Branford Trash Collection Suspended for the Week

Curbside collection will resume on Tuesday, Feb. 19; the transfer station will open on Wednesday, Feb. 13.


Updated: Feb. 11, 3 p.m. from the Town of Branford

There are still many roads in town that are still not passable, especially for the Towns Haulers. The Department of Public Works is working tirelessly to make sure the roads are safe for the residents as well as emergency personnel, including the haulers. So, for the safety of everyone , the Town of Branford has suspended the collection for the entire week.

There will be no curbside collection for garbage and recycling until Tuesday, February 19. The Transfer Station is closed on Monday, February 18 in observance of President’s Day, so all collections that week will be delayed one day.

The Transfer Station will be open on Wednesday, February 13 from 7:15 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. You may bring your garbage and recyclables here. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

The town e-mail said there was no trash collection today (as does the header of this article), but the article says that today is a normal collection day. Could you clear up that contradiction?
Jenn McCulloch February 11, 2013 at 03:39 PM
Updated it with the new information Alana. Thanks for the heads up.

Was just informed there will be no pickup at all this week

Tim, I got that e-mail, too, and saw Jenn had already posted it to Patch. What a storm! Jenn, well done on the quick editing. :)

Good morning, There are NO collections this week. The article should have stopped after the "updated Feb 11th" It appears you combined postings from the towns website making this read very confusing to everyone. This week...Wed, Thurs, and Friday the hours at the Transfer Station are 7:15-1:30, and on Sat 7:15-2:30. The following week, all collections are delayed one day because of Monday, February 18th holiday, and the Transfer Station being closed. Thank you
