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.
