As a friendly reminder!

Trash must be in official Stonington yellow bags, tied and not overweight

Recyclables can be in any container, 32 gallon and under.  Recyclables in plastic bags will not be disposed.  Please flatten any cardboard  and please keep your recyclables secured to prevent the wind from blowing the contents down your street!
