Little Bites of Ledyard is a compilation of Ledyard news, events and items of interest in the Ledyard Community. Not enough for a blog post but just a bite with direct links to more information! This week I have news about Ledyard Trash Pickup, the Ledyard Farmers Market, Ledyard Libraries and the Ledyard Fair.
Ledyard Trash Talk from the Public Works Director – I posted this message from the Ledyard Public Works Director on the Ledyard Community Forum on Facebook. Many people were surprised about the information about plastic bags and the pizza boxes. “By way of an important reminder, plastic bags are NOT acceptable for recycling and should NOT be placed in the blue cart. This has been observed to be a widespread issue. If it is your practice to collect acceptable recyclables in plastic bags, they must be emptied from the bags into the blue cart and the bags reused or disposed of as trash. Also, soiled paper and cardboard, such as greasy pizza boxes, are not acceptable as recyclable. Any portion of such items that is soiled must be disposed of as trash (e.g., the clean portion of pizza boxes may be separated from the soiled portion and placed in the blue cart with the soiled portion going in the trash cart).”
Due to the Ledyard Fair taking place on the Fairgrounds, the Ledyard Farmers Market will be on the grassy area between the Bill Library and the Ledyard Congregational Church. Some Market hours, same Market day, just a different Market location. This is for one week only. On Sept. 14 they will be back on the Fairgrounds as normal. Here are some of the Vendors you will find at the market.
