"Recycling is mandatory in Farmington"

The Farmington Public Works Department maintains the Bulky Waste and Recycling Facility.  Thanks to the efforts of our townspeople, the Town of Farmington recycles approximately 50% of its waste which reduces disposal costs and dependence on commercial disposal options.

  • Landfill operation and maintenance – Management and hauling of collected materials, maintenance for DEP permit requirements, and providing an attendant for regular hours of operation.
  • Maintaining brush/leaf/yard waste for composting
  • Residents can drop off items that still have life in them to the “Swap Shop.”
