Extra Trash

Extra bags of trash (lid should close on trash container) will not be taken by the trash collector unless there is an extra bag tag attached to each 30-35 gallon bag. The tags can be purchased for $3.50 per tag in the Town Hall, Revenue of Collector's office, located at 4 South Eagleville Road, Storrs, CT. Tie one tag onto each extra 30-35 gallon bag, and it will be collected. Some residents take their extra trash to the transfer station. For the transfer station location and hours go to http://www.mansfieldct.gov/1564/Transfer-Station. The cost is $3.50 per 30-35 gallon bag. Once a year in December, the Town offers unlimited household trash pick-up. This does not include bulky waste items. The notice about unlimited pick-up is posted on the website and included with the quarterly bills.
