About

Copes Rubbish Removal is a local, family owned and operated business with more than 80 years of experience in servicing customers in Watertown, Oakville and surrounding communities. The business was started by Joseph Copes in 1930 and is now represented by the fourth generation of the Copes Family. In simpler days in rural and small town Connecticut, householders generally had very little to waste, and it was sound husbandry that edible refuse be fed to commercially raised pigs. Part of a farmer’s lot was to locate and transport a steady source of fresh garbage to feed his animals, and his success with the primary enterprise was largely dependent upon his effectiveness as a waste manager. Such a farmer was Joseph Copes, who developed a mutually beneficial relationship with several Waterbury restaurants to remove their kitchen and table scraps to feed his pigs on the farm he rented from Fletcher Judson on Echo Lake Road in Watertown in the 1920′s and 1930′s.
