Scofieldtown Recycling Center closing


STAMFORD — City officials are closing the Scofieldtown Recycling Center in North Stamford at the end of the month in order to complete environmental remediation at the property.

An Environmental Protection Agency investigation prompted the closure of the recycling center’s adjoining park five years ago. The extensive remediation project will install a permanent cap on the 80-year-old landfill.

The recycling center will remain closed through the end of the year, according to the mayor’s office. In the meantime, residents can use the Katrina Mygatt Recycling Center at 130 Magee Ave.

The center’s hours are: 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday; 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., Saturday.

    Maybe its time for North Stamford to consider breaking away from the city and forming its own town again. They could keep their fire departments and hire a Resident State Trooper like many of the other small towns do. They could contract with neighboring towns for High School services.

    Food for thought.

    Again with a ‘cap.’ what a waste of money and time.
    It will do nothing to address the contaminants there.
    Remember,water is always running through that location.

    And closing the recycling center is a major disservice to many residents
    who enjoy few direct municipal services.

    Where can Stamford residents go to get soil for their gardens if the Scofieldtown Recycling Center is closing down?

    So will it be completed before the fall, or does the city need to find another place to dump leaves this year?
