Transfer station remains closed Tuesday after wind damages roof
Wind damaged the town transfer station roof Monday, and the facility was closed Tuesday with residents being sent to a facility in Danbury to dispose of garbage.
“Wind blew part of the roof off,” First Selectman Rudy Marconi said.
The Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority (HRRA), which operates the town’s transfer station, is overseeing repairs to the metal roof.
“The Ridgefield Transfer Station remains closed for today, Tuesday, Feb. 26,” a release from Marconi’s office said. “Crews will be onsite today to evaluate the damage and begin repairs.”
“Residents can utilize the Oak Ridge mom and pop service located at 307 White Street Danbury, CT. Please remember to bring your drivers license. If you should experience any trouble with this service please call HRRA at 203-775-4539. Thank you for your understanding.”
A spokesperson at the town highway department said that during the repairs in Ridgefield the White Street facility would only charge Ridgefield residents a “disposal fee per unit” based on the weight of their load, not the additional “one-day usage or access fees” that might otherwise apply.
There was optimism the repairs wouldn’t take to long.
“We’re hoping it will be done today,” the highway department spokesperson said.
