What is a Resident Disposal Pass?

We issue residents with a disposal pass for Norwalk Transfer Station located at
61 Crescent St, Norwalk, CT 06854, and the Yard waste site is located at 15 S Smith St, Norwalk, CT 06855. You can print the pass and display it on your dashboard or take a screenshot and show it to the attendants.

What do I need to park at the beach?

We receive Norwalk-registered license plates from the DMV once a year in September. We apply those September plates to our new season on April 1st every year. Residents with verified plates in our system can park free of charge at the beaches and parks. Our parking enforcement is done with license plate readers. Non-residents or vehicles not registered in Norwalk need to pay the daily fee. 

Calf Pasture Beach, Veteran's Park, Taylor Farm, and Cranbury Park parking fees are in effect from May 15 to October 15 every year.
