Post-Holiday Cardboard, Box & Electronics Drop-off

West Hartford will be offering a post-holiday cardboard and box drop off event for a second year in a row.  This program is designed for residents with more post-holiday cardboard and boxes than will fit in their recycling barrel.  Last year’s event was widely successful with residents dropping off more than 112 yards of material.

This year’s event will be expanded to include an electronics collection for those with unwanted electronics.  Take 2 Inc. a Waterbury based electronics recycler will be onsite to collect those materials. The event will take place on Saturday December 30, 2017 between the hours of 8:00 am and 12:00 pm in the rear parking lot of the the Department of Public Works at 17 Brixton Street.

The Department of Public Works encourages residents to drop-off extra holiday cardboard and boxes to support the Town’s ongoing effort to reduce waste and promote recycling in our community. Your unwanted electronics items are also encouraged.
