Welcome to the Town of Ellington

Trash and Recycling Information

If you need to schedule a bulky waste pickup, please call All American Waste at 860-289-7850 four days in advance of your regular pick up day. 

There is no longer a separate $125 fee for trash collection; this is now included in your taxes.

The Board of Selectmen recently adopted a new policy for individuals who wish to have additional trash barrels; this is now contracted directly through All American Waste. Click here to view the full policy and fee schedule for additional barrels. 

Holidays - There will be a one-day delay in trash/recycling collection for the following holidays: Thanksgiving (November 25 & 26). If a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there is no delay; this year, there will be no delay for the Christmas and New Years holidays, as both of these fall on Saturdays.

Please call the Department of Public Works at 860-870-3140 if you have any questions about trash and recycling collection.
