Help Keep Bristol Clean & Green 

Most illegal dumping is done to avoid paying disposal fees at the transfer station or failure to take the time and effort to schedule bulk pickup appointments. Common areas for dumping
may include vacant properties, curbside dumping, commercial dumpsters, and along the roadside. Dumping causes devaluation of property, health hazards and storm water pollution. Items dumped can wash debris and pollutants into the storm drain system, causing flooding, clogged drains and damage to wildlife and plants. 

You can help clean up our city by reporting illegal bulk & illegal dumping to Public Works online or by phone 860-584-6125. Please provide as much information as possible,
date/time/location/items and if a license plate on a vehicle was spotted. The City of Bristol needs your help to eliminate illegal bulk and unsightly littering in our streets, forests, and other public right of ways, as well as on private and commercial properties. Illegal bulk/Illegal dumping is disposing of waste or unwanted materials in unauthorized areas. Illegally dumped items may include: 

                        -Household debris      

                        -Construction and landscaping debris

                        -Tires & Automotive parts, Used oil, fuel and other chemicals

                        -Furniture, mattresses, and appliances
