The Town provides once per week curbside collection of trash and recyclables. Trash must be placed in the "yellow bags" and placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. Any additional level of service (extra trash collection or back yard collection) may be provided by the individual Fire Districts. The Town of Stonington does not offer 'bulky' pick-up service or 'amnesty days'.
Curbside collection of trash and recyclables is as follows: the color-coded Town Map show collection days for the Fire Districts in the Town of Stonington; the link for Fire Districts Street List and Collection Days also has a link to an alphabetical street listing giving more detail for the Pawcatuck Fire District.
