Refuse Collector

The City of Hartford adopted a municipal refuse collector registration ordinance in March, 2009. It requires all collectors complete a registration form and submit it to the Department of Public Works (DPW) with specific documentation and fees in order for your company to continue to offer trash collection and hauling services within the City of Hartford. You are required to register every vehicle used in Hartford for waste and recycling collection by October 30 of each year.

You may find a copy of the registration form and the Municipal Code, Section 15 below.

Upon receipt of all the registration documents, permit tags will be issued by DPW. These must be placed on the left windshield of each vehicle.

The registration packet and fee should be sent to DPW Fiscal at City of Hartford, Department of Public Works, 50 Jennings Road, Hartford, CT 06120 by October 30.  In conjunction with CRRA, the City of Hartford will initiate an inspection program to insure compliance with refuse collector registration after the deadline.

DPW also reminds collectors that they are required to comply with the city’s Noise Ordinance, Section 23 of the Municipal Code

If you have questions regarding this registration, please direct them to Ms. Brenda Padilla by calling (860) 757-4951.
