Windsor’s 2017 leaf collection program will begin on Monday, October 23 and will end on Friday, December 15. During this eight-week period, your leaves will be picked up on the same day as your trash pick-up.
Residents must place their leaves at the curb in 30 to 40 gallon paper leaf bags. Leaves may also be placed in similar-sized containers that are labeled with a “Leaves Only” sticker that can be easily identified by the driver (i.e., sticker facing the road). Residents can obtain these stickers at town hall or at the Windsor Transfer station (formerly known as the landfill).
In Windsor, the transfer station accepts residents’ leaves at no charge and uses them to produce compost. Leaves must be clean and must not contain other items that will compromise the quality of the mulch that will be created. These items include grass clippings, branches, or other items.
If you choose to self-haul your leaves to the transfer station, there is no charge during this period for dropping off clean loads of leaves (no contaminates or plastic bags). The transfer station accepts leaves Monday and Friday from 8:00 AM -2:45 PM, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 AM – 2:45 PM and Saturday from 8:00 AM – 3:45 PM. The Windsor Transfer Station is closed on Thursday and Sunday and is located at 500 Huckleberry Road. For more information, please call the landfill scale office at 860-285-1833.
