Bristol Farmers Market to Add Recycling Events

Saturday, September 19 is shaping up to be a busy day in downtown Bristol.

From 9am- 12pm, the Bristol Library and Department of Public Works will host a FREE Shredding Event for Bristol residents. A shredding truck will be on site to shred personal paper documents, thus helping to protect your personal information by destroying old and unneeded documents safely and immediately on site. The truck will be located in the opposite parking lot from the Farmers Market on Hope St. Note there is a limit of 4 Banker Boxes per vehicle.

Each Saturday through October 31st, the Bristol Public Works Department along with Take 2 Inc, are hosting the Bristol Electronics Recycling Event. Connecticut residents are encouraged to bring their household electronics to this local recycling collection center. The event is held each Saturday during the Farmers Market from 10am – 1pm. Volunteers are needed for the month of October. If you’re interested, please contact the Lindsey Rivers in Public Works at 860-584-6103.

“This week’s Farmer’s Market has 19 vendors,” stated Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu. “Two new ones include, An Average Continuum Distillery and Oma’s Pride are back in the rotation, and there will be music by Brendan Donahue.” 

Two non-profits are also featured this week, the Bristol Historical Society, which will be selling their 2020 commemorative Covid-19 ornaments and Bristol Hospital ornaments and Best-4-Bristol, which is the City’s drug and alcohol prevention council. “The U.S. Census will also be available to help people complete their survey online, at the Farmers Market and those who complete them will receive a free gift,” said Councilwoman Brittany Barney. The City’s current response rate to the 2020 Census which represents those who self-responded via mail, computer or phone is 73.4%.
