REFILL Not Landfill Campaign

Many of us stopped using reusable cups during COVID.


All Southbury retailers support the use of reusable cups! Many provide discounts and/or reward points for using your own clean personal reusable cup. Starbucks in Southbury just added an option on their mobile app to support using your own cup.


So let’s all make this small change to benefit the environment and earn rewards at the same time!

Learn how to participate in the free program at the Southbury Transfer Station, why you should compost, and what items are accepted.
