Brookfield shifts recycling center to Danbury after New Milford outsources oversight

Brookfield's Recycling Facility has changed from New Milford to Danbury following the outsourcing of the site to a private vendor.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says Brookfield was not notified that this change was going to happen and only learned of it in the news.  Dunn says after meeting with the new operator in New Milford to discuss the changes, notification was sent the next day that they would no longer accept any Brookfield residents as customers.

Starting immediately, all Brookfield residents with permits can continue to recycle at the Oak Ridge facility in Danbury at 307 White Street. Dunn says he would have preferred to notify residents well ahead of any change, but the abrupt refusal to continue to service Brookfield residents caused the town to move quickly and establish a new relationship with Oak Ridge. 

Oak Ridge accepts every type of recycled product and fees are similar to the ones New Milford charges.  All residents who want to recycle at the Oak Ridge facility must have a permit issued by the Brookfield’s Public Works department. The fee is $10 annually and is free for those over age 62.

Residents can get full details of operating hours and materials accepted on the town web site under public works.
