The following was compiled from a press release from the Town of Wilton.
Despite the implementation of numerous initiatives by Wilton officials to mitigate rising costs, operational losses for the town’s Transfer Station have continued to grow. As a result, the Board of Selectmen voted to begin implementing a permit fee for residents to use the Transfer Station effective July 1, 2023.
As of that date, Wilton residents will be required to have a newly purchased vehicle permit sticker to use the Wilton Transfer Station for any purpose, including recycling.
FY2024 vehicle permit sticker fees are as follows:
- $40 for first vehicle for residents age 64 and younger
- $20 for second vehicle
- $20 for any vehicle for residents age 65 years and up
The town has set a maximum of two stickers per household. New permit stickers will be required for each fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
Vehicle permit stickers may be purchased online through the Town of Wilton website, in person at the Wilton Town Clerk’s office, or by mail. Residents should complete the Transfer Station Vehicle Permit Application available on the Town of Wilton website.
If purchasing in person, bring the completed application, the vehicle registration(s), and a check payable to the Town of Wilton to the Town Clerk’s office.
If ordering by mail, send the completed application with a copy of the vehicle(s) registration, a self-addressed stamped envelope, and a check made payable to the Town of Wilton.
