Town of Tolland Metal and Bulky Waste Changes
The Tolland Town Council recently approved changes to the Metal/Bulky Waste program that will save the Town approximately $69,000 in the upcoming fiscal year. The following changes will take effect 7/1/14:
- • Reduce the number of Town sponsored monthly pick-ups of Metal/Bulky Waste at curbside from (6) to (2). The (2) Town sponsored months will be July 2014 and April 2015.
- • Authorize our vendor (Willimantic Waste Paper Co., Inc.) to do (10) additional monthly Metal/Bulky Waste at curbside pick-ups per year with the resident being charged by the vendor $32 per pick-up for up to (4) reasonable sized items. Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received by Willimantic Waste Paper Co., Inc. for those months where there is a charge. Paid reservations can only be done by calling Willimantic Waste Paper Co., Inc. at the phone number below.
- • Eliminate the picking up of oil at curbside due to environmental concerns. Some auto parts businesses take used motor oil. Bill’s Auto Parts is one local option.
All other procedures for Metal/Bulky Waste will remain the same. Metal/Bulky Waste will only be picked up the first full week of every month. Reservations must be made 4 days in advance by calling Willimantic Waste Paper Co., Inc. at (800) 286-5335 or (860) 423-4527 or by making a reservation through Willimantic Waste’s website.
