Department of Solid Waste and Recycling

The Town’s Transfer Station, recycling center, and leaf compost site accepts almost all materials generated in Branford for disposal or recycling, except for large quantities of construction/demolition materials; stumps, large trees or grass clippings; or hazardous or biomedical wastes.

The Town provides weekly collection of household trash, recyclables and cardboard for single-family homes through a private hauler, leaf collection in spring and fall, and free access to our permanent regional household hazardous waste center in New Haven 22 Saturdays a year. Rebates toward garbage and recycling collection costs are provided for condominium associations.

Please see Information Links in bottom right corner for additional information.
