Stamford's transfer station is back open after a grenade was found in a pile of trash.
Supervisors say it was discovered shortly before 9 a.m. while crews were sorting the pile.
They say they immediately shut the station down, evacuated the area, and waited for police.

The Stamford bomb squad reportedly took the grenade away, and the business was able to reopen shortly before 10 a.m.
