WILTON — The transfer station on Munson Road is closed today, Oct. 16, and may need to be closed tomorrow after power lines to the building were severed by two snapped poles and downed trees due to high winds overnight.

“We’ll re-post on Facebook (and notify) local news outlets when it reopens,” she said.

The transfer station is usually open Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday 8 a..m. to 2 p.m. and Wednesday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Town Office is closed Wednesday.
