Stamford, Connecticut

Stamford is a city in Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States. According to the 2010 census, the population of the city is 122,643. As of July 1, 2014, according to the Census Bureau, the population of Stamford had risen to 128,278, making it the third largest city in the state. Approximately 30 miles from Manhattan, Stamford is in the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk Metro area which is a part of the Greater New York metropolitan area. Stamford is home to four Fortune 500 Companies, nine Fortune 1000 Companies, and 13 Courant 100 Companies, as well as numerous divisions of large corporations. This gives Stamford the largest financial district in New York Metro outside New York City itself and one of the largest concentrations of corporations in the nation.

The mission of the City of Stamford’s Recycling & Sanitation Division is the clean and efficient recycling and garbage collection for households, municipal properties and schools. Our goal is to improve Stamford‘s recycling rate through providing support and information for the Stamford’s Curbside Recycling Program, Katrina Mygatt Recycling Center, and Hazardous Waste Collection Days. Stamford Recycling and Sanitation provides staffing and manages the Katrina Mygatt Recycling Center, The Scale House, Collections Department and Hazardous Waste Collection Days. Last year, by diverting waste into recycling, Stamford recycled over 12,000 tons of material (rather than incinerating or putting in a landfill), which resulted in cost savings of over $800,000 from waste hauling, and generating over $263,000 in revenue from the sale of recycling commodities. We are continuing to divert recyclables out of the total waste stream, resulting in a 40% diversion rate last fiscal year which includes single stream recycling and compostable waste.
