First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today that the Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that a milling and resurfacing project will be performed on Route 59 & State Route (SR) 726 in Fairfield and Easton. This project is scheduled to take place from Sunday, May 22, 2016 through Saturday, June 4, 2016.
The project consists of milling and resurfacing of 2.24 miles of Route 59 in Fairfield/Easton and .10 miles of SR 726 in Fairfield. The milling segment of this project is anticipated to take place from Sunday, May 22, 2016 through Thursday, May 26, 2016.

Motorists can expect lane closures on Route 59 from SR 726 (Jefferson St) to Old Oak Road in Easton and on SR 726 (Jefferson Street) from Route 59 (Easton Turnpike) to End State Maintenance (the Salt Storage Building off Jefferson Street). Traffic control personnel and signing patterns will be utilized to guide motorists through the work zone. The regular work schedule for this project is 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. This project affects only the most northerly section of Route 59 in Fairfield—most of the work is being performed in Easton.

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.
