Oversized MSW aka Bulky Items are picked up every Thursday in Windsor Locks. Please call All American Waste to schedule the collection and to provide a detailed list. Most items are picked up at no charge. You will be referred to the Public Works Department if there is a charge for a particular item (mattresses / boxsprings, or items with Freon).
Metal items are picked up by All American Waste on the 4th Friday of Every month at no charge to the resident. Please call All American Waste to schedule.
How do I dispose of a Matress or Boxspring?
Mattresses and boxprings can be picked up as part of bulk collections on Thursday, but a $10.00 per item disposal fee must first be paid at the Public Works Office.
What do I do with an old TV or Computer since they aren't picked up at the curb?
Residents may bring them to the Public Works Department. Click here for more information about Electronics Recycling.
What do I do with an old propane tank?
Propane Tanks are not acceptable in your regular household trash, nor will they be picked up curbside. Some local hardware stores will accept them for a small convenience fee, but always call first! (Hawthorne's Agway in Enfield 860-749-8189).
What do I do with old car tires?
Tires may be removed from the rims and placed on top of your household trash to be picked up on your regular trash day.
How do I get rid of paint?
Waterbased or Latex paint can be dried out and placed in your household trash. Empty cans should also be put into the trash (not your recycle barrel). You can also recycle your leftover paint at many Sherwin-Willams Stores. Click here to find a local drop-off location and read the restrictions.
