The cost of the garbage disposal for the East Lyme curbside solid waste collection is covered in the Highway/Sanitation budget (Dept 317) in the annual Town operating budget. The cost of the can(s) is the responsibility of the property owner.
The cost of Commercial pickup (aka dumpster service) is the responsibility of the business owner. When the commercial trash vendor picks up trash at businesses in the Town of East Lyme, they are supposed to be registered to do so with the East Lyme Highway & Sanitation Department. It is the responsibility of the commercial vendor to submit this registration form to the Department by July 1st of each year. For a copy of the Commercial Hauler Registration Form, see the Sanitation page.
