A hand grenade was found at a Stratford waste management facility, police said.
Statford police responded to the facility on Garfield Avenue on Thursday. The Connecticut State Police Bomb Squad was called in to disarm the explosive and remove it from the area.
The grenade appeared to be from World War I or World War II and was apparently thrown out in the garbage that ended up at the facility.
Employees were alerted.
The scene was cleared without incident.
No other details were available.
