Trash Collection

Curbside Trash Collection

The Town of Rocky Hill provides automated residential curbside trash collection through our contracted provider, TRASH AWAY (860-225-1206).  Residential units are single-family dwellings, multi-family dwellings of 4 or fewer units, and condominiums.  All commercial property owners, including businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, motels, hotels, and apartment buildings, must secure their own hauler for solid waste and recycling.


Trash is collected curbside every week.  Refer to the Trash Collection Schedule By Street (PDF) to view your trash collection day.  

  • Place your cart at the curb before 5:00 A.M. on your collection day.  
  • Bring in carts within 24 hours of pick-up. 
  • Holiday one-day delays for 2023 - Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
