City Carting Reduces Minimum Tonnage for Residents to Dispose of Items Not Accepted at Norwalk Transfer Station


In the ongoing recovery from the remnants of Hurricane Ida, the City of Norwalk worked with City Carting to reduce the minimum tonnage accepted at the City Carting Meadow Street Transfer Station to help residents dispose of materials not accepted at the Norwalk Transfer Station on Crescent Street. Usually, the minimum weight for disposal is 1,000 pounds at the City Carting facility at a cost of $62.50, but starting tomorrow, Tuesday, September 14 through Tuesday, September 28, the minimum weight has been reduced to 100 pounds at a cost of $6.25. The cost to dispose of materials is $125 per ton and is prorated based on weight over 100 pounds. This special disposal period with a reduced minimum weight is for Norwalk residents only – no commercial accounts will be accepted.

The City Carting Transfer Station is located at 18 Meadow St., and is open Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. The facility may close early if capacity is reached.

Starting Tuesday, September 14 through Tuesday, September 28, residents can bring the following items to City Carting’s Meadow St Transfer Station:
• Construction debris
• Sheetrock
• Concrete
• Asphalt
• Toilets & sinks
• Countertops

Those items are not accepted at the Norwalk Transfer Station due to Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental (DEEP) permitting.
