COVID-19 | Transfer Station Operations Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Litchfield Transfer Station is taking the following steps to maintain public services and protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. To maximize safe distancing measures hours of operations have been extended, restrictions have been placed on days when brush, leaves and yard waste is accepted and the swap table is closed.  These changes, as well as others, will hopefully ease congestion. All temporary changes in hours, rules and procedures are listed below:
