1/7/2020 - Survey on Post Road Circle Safety Set to Close
A survey to solicit public feedback on the Post Road/Kings Highway Circle will close as of Friday, January 17th. The survey, which is part of a broader initiative focused on enhancing safety for all users of the Post Road/Kings Highway Circle area, may be found here. The Town is working with the Regional Planning Agency, Metrocog, as well as planning consultant Fitzgerald & Halliday, Inc., on strategies to create a safer and more attractive pedestrian environment and to develop more robust infrastructure for bicycles, buses and other vehicles. The project will focus on an area of the Post Road between South Benson Road and Shoreham Terrace, which has been identified as a trouble spot in need of improvement, most recently by a CDOT-funded Roadway Safety Audit in 2016. An initial public workshop was held in October, and more workshops are expected to follow this spring. For presentation materials and more information about the project, including how to get more involved, visit the project website. The study, which is being funded through a $375,000 grant, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day
Hazardous Waste Collection Day: Saturday, August 28, 2021

The Town of Fairfield hosts its annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on a Saturday in late August at Veteran's Park to provide you with the opportunity to dispose of household hazardous waste at no charge. Just load up your car and your car will be emptied for you. There's no need to get out of your vehicle. See more details below.
For information on disposing of hazardous waste all other times of the year, please visit our Hazardous Waste webpage.

Please click here to view a list of what household materials are accepted and which ones are not.
If you have only antifreeze, motor oil or automotive batteries, you can take them directly to the Transfer Station.
There is a specific traffic pattern for the Collection Day. There will be signage posted. Police and volunteers will also be on site to direct traffic and answer questions.
To access the site proceed as follows:
- From Old Post Road or Oldfield Road turn onto Rowland Road
- At the third stop sign turn right onto Edward Street
- Proceed to drop off site at Veterans Park
- Signage is posted and police and volunteers are on site to direct traffic and answer questions.
A few tips for transporting your hazardous waste to the collection site:
- Don't mix hazardous wastes. Keep waste in their original containers if possible.
- Keep hazardous waste away from children and animals.
- Don't smoke in the vehicle.
- For safety reasons, there will be no walk-in drop-offs on Collection Day.
Chemicals from around the home, workshop or garden shed may contain substances which are difficult to dispose of safely. Your effort will help protect our Town's environment and our region's water supply.
The Town needs volunteers from 8:30 - 11:30 or 11:00 - 2:00 on Collection Day. Volunteers will not be handling any hazardous waste. If you would like to volunteer please contact the Solid Waste and Recycling Department.
