Update on HHW and Paper Shred Events

The Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments is hosting Household Hazardous Waste and Paper Shredding Events through the spring, summer and fall.  Middletown residents can attend these events at no charge.  Due to COVID-19 new protocols have been put in place to ensure the public’s safety, as well as safety for workers and volunteers.  If you are planning to attend one of these events, please take a moment to read through the new safety requirements. Participants will be turned away if they do not prepare their materials properly or are not abiding by these safety standards.   We greatly appreciate everyone’s help in making sure these events are held safely for everyone.

We are finding many of our usual volunteers who are senior citizens are unable to help at this time.  If you are interested in volunteering at one of these events, please contact RiverCOG directly at 860-581-8554 or email

Thank you and Stay Safe!
