Winters Brothers is partnering with Danbury for the annual Clean City Danbury Day on Saturday from 8 am to 12 pm. The clean-up program brings residents and and businesses together to help clean streets, neighborhoods, parks and waterways. Winters Brothers is supplying free hauling and disposal for waste material collected during the community cleanup.
Winters Brothers is also providing a free, one-day paper confidential shredding program for Danbury residents. Residents can bring their sensitive documents that require shredding to their Recycling Center at 307 White Street in Danbury.
Volunteers will be picking up litter in a neighborhood, park or waterway, volunteering at a special designated dumpster location to assist residents and cleaning up abandoned property or lots of debris and unwanted items. Almost 1,000 volunteers have signed up.
This is the 13th year for the Clean City Danbury program.
Dumpsters will be located at five locations:
1. City Hall (155 Deer Hill Avenue)
2. Rogers Park (by tennis courts)
3. WCSU West Side Campus (43 Lake Avenue Ext)
4. Public Works Building (53 Newtown Rd.)
5. P.A.L. Building (35 Hayestown Rd.)
No commercial waste or commercial vehicles will be allowed to dump for free. Additionally, Winters Bros. cannot accept the following items at the drop off centers:
NO ELECTRONICS (There is a free year-round electronic drop off center at Winters Bros. Recycling Center, 307 White St. in Danbury)
NO Hazardous Wastes (The City sponsors a Hazardous Waste Day in September)
NO Grass clippings or yard debris
NO Construction debris
Scrap metal and tires can be brought to the dumpster locations but cannot be placed into the roll off containers with the regular trash. Appliances that contain Freon (refrigerators and air conditioning units) must be kept separate from other garbage.
