Recycling Pickup Schedule

Solid waste collection, including recyclables, is performed under contract. In addition to weekly curbside collection, the town maintains space at the highway garage for brush, wood, metal and appliances that are brought there, subject to certain conditions and fees.

Sewer Service

Rocky Hill is one of eight member communities in the Metropolitan District Commission which provides both water and sewer service. The other communities are: Hartford , Newington , Wethersfield , Windsor , Bloomfield , East Hartford and West Hartford . The Sewer Service Charge Account includes funds for the Town's share of the MDC Sewer use charge for the fiscal year 2006/2007. This annual charge also includes the cost of a regional household hazardous waste collection program that is held in each of the eight member communities once a year. Rate payers fund water service, while sewer costs are part of each town's tax levy.

Solid Waste Disposal

Loose leaves, which the town collects every fall, are com posted for approximately 2 years in an area of the industrial park. Once they are fully composted, the leaves are brought to a site located on Old Forge Road . Residents can take mulch for their personal use at no charge.

The Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA), whose plant is located in Hartford Meadows at the former coal fired, electric generating plant of Northeast Utilities, burns and generates electricity from solid waste delivered there by Rocky Hill and other towns. They also maintain the former Hartford landfill off 1-91 at Jennings Road for solid waste disposal (ash and non-combustibles), as well as a recycling center not far from their generating plant.

Freecycle

Freecycle is a grassroots movement of people who are giving and getting stuff for free, as an alternative to adding to our landfills. Freecycle provides individuals and non-profits an electronic forum to recycle unwanted items. One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!

Freecycling lies somewhere between the garage sale and the dump, and is much cooler than both. It's an innovative concept that harnesses the power of the Internet to do what the Internet does best eliminate the middleman and empower the individual. It's a perfect consumer-friendly circle: no overhead, no intermediaries, no money changing hands, no waste and no catch, and everyone's happy www.freecycle.org
