Call it what you want, the New Canaan Transfer Station is the go-to place for New Canaan of trash, newspapers, books, computer parts, appliances, batteries, propane and brush.
The general consensus among the folks Patch met on its visit to the Transfer Station is that this a well-oiled machine. It's organized, the people who work there are helpful and friendly, and the price is fair. The annual sticker fee for residents is $40.
People we met came on their way to or from the gym, or before they were "dressed" for the day, so most didn't want their picture taken. One senior citizen said she and five other women make weekly dump runs and call themselves The Dumpsters!
Manager Don Smith has been working at the facility for 28 years, and said the name does cause confusion for some. He said he still gets calls from people asking when the next train is coming in to the Transfer Station.
