Bulk Waste Pick-up Program Begins
(By Appointment Only) April 5, 2021 – September 22, 2021
Before tossing your waste out the front door there are guidelines. The most important being:
Residents MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT to have their bulk items picked up prior to placing those items curbside.
Appointments can be made starting March 22nd by calling Stratford Department of Public Works at 203-385-4080 from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.
Each household is allowed one appointment per year for the collection period of April 5th 2021 to September 22nd 2021. If all appointment slots have been filled prior to the last date of pick up we will no longer accept appointments.
Residents must place all bulk items curbside in an organized fashion by 7:00 am on the scheduled date of appointment. No items are to be placed curbside prior to 3 days before scheduled pick up date.
Acceptable bulk collection items include:
Furniture, Mattresses/Box springs, Carpeting, Fencing/Decking (4 ft. max length)
