The Avon Landfill recycled 39% of its waste stream in Fiscal Year 2009/2010. Our community once again attained one of the highest percentages in our region. Our transfer station and bulky waste (brush) area now sell approximately 1,800 yearly permits and last year processed 960 tons of household waste. This waste is shipped to the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA) in Hartford.
