The Town of Cheshire closed the Town-operated Transfer Station on July 1, 2011 as part of budget cuts implemented by the Town Council in the Fiscal Year 2011-2012 budget. A private transfer station located in Cheshire as well as HazWaste Central in New Haven are available to Town residents who wish to dispose of bulky and hazardous waste items that are not accepted in the weekly trash collection. For hours, fees and more information on the local private transfer station, please call 203-272-4039.
