Ledyard Trash and Recycling pickup will be on a normal schedule for the weeks of December 26 & January 2.
The Town's garbage contract with Willimantic Waste allows for a special provision the week after Christmas. Extra trash may be placed next to a full trash container and recyclable materials may be placed next to the recycling container. The overflow trash must be neatly bagged and recyclables are limited to neatly flattened and stacked cardboard and boxboard. Remember, Styrofoam is not recyclable.
For the Christmas/New Year’s weekends, here are the Transfer Station hours:
Saturday, 12/24 9:00 am to 12:30 pm
Sunday, 12/25 Closed
Saturday, 12/31 9:00 am to 12:30 pm
Sunday, 1/01 Closed

From the Ledyard Town Website:
Ledyard uses the “Single Stream” recycling collection method. This means that the material your household places out at the curbside - newspapers, cardboard, bottles, cans etc. - is collected all together. The recyclables will be sorted at the Single Stream Recycling Facility especially designed to process and sort the mixed recyclables. Single Stream recycling makes collecting materials at the curbside much easier. Homeowners and recycling collectors don't do any sorting making recycling even easier.
Remember that recycling saves your tax dollars. For every ton of recyclable materials not sent to the incinerator the town saves at least $63 between reduced tipping fees and recycling revenue. So not only do we save money but also make money.
