Windsor’s 2020 leaf collection program will begin on Monday October 26th and will end on Friday December 18th. 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 (ie:, the sticker facing the road). Residents can obtain these stickers at the Town Hall or the Windsor Transfer Station.
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 contaminants or plastic bags).
The transfer station accepts leaves Mondays and Fridays 8:00 AM to 2:45 PM, Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10:00 AM to 2:45 PM, and Saturdays 8:00 AM to 3:45 PM. Residents should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to closing to allow sufficient time to unload their vehicles. The Windsor Transfer Station is closed on Thursday and Sunday. It is located at 500 Huckleberry Road in Windsor. If you have any questions regarding recycling or composting in Windsor, please call the Transfer Station at (860) 285-1833.
