Transfer Station

Disposing of your trash and recyclables in Windsor requires an annual "car sticker", and there are fees to dispose of various items. Car stickers cost $75 annually and are available from the Town Clerk during their office hours along with a check payable to "Town of Windsor". New stickers are required by July 1 each year.

You will need to fill out and can send this form [pdf] to:

NEW "tag" system to replace bags (November 2023)

In an effort to reduce the introduction of unnecessary plastic to the waste stream, Windsor is

discontinuing the sale of the blue/green garbage bags for the pay to throw program. We will now sell

tags to be affixed to the trash going into the compactor. Each tag costing $1 entitles you to

throw 33 gallons of trash (the amount you could previously get into a large blue bag.) You can

choose to use large plastic bags, or you can use paper or other options. If you have 50 pound

feed bags, dog food bags etc. two of them are equivalent to the 33 gallons.

We still have quite a few of the smaller bags if you want to use them until they run out. This

program has been successfully introduced in neighboring towns and residents have been

pleased with having options to plastic bags. The tags will continue to be sold at the two general

stores. A page of five stickers for $5. Simply attach the tag to whatever bags you choose to


Swap Shop (Windsor Mall)

One person's junk is another's treasure!

Visit the Swap Shop when you visit the Transfer Station.

Drop off stuff you don't need and find a treasure. Kids welcome!


You can bring medical sharps (hypodermic needles, epi-pens, syringes, etc.). There is a sharps container inside the "mercury shed", or ask the attendant.

Medication Disposal

Not at the transfer station, but available at the Police station (lower level of Town Offices). Peel off or scribble over personal id info and drop the meds in the secure box. Don’t keep old meds around the house. It’s easy to dispose of them in the secure box.
