There is a Stonington Borough Ordinance (SBO-07) overseeing the collection of household and commercial garbage, trash and recycling. This ordinance states that garbage must be kept in closed and secured containers, tightly sealed, in order for it not to be accessible to animals - except for the day of collection ONLY, when yellow bags may be put out at the curb no earlier than 6 am.
This means that for those of you who prefer to put your trash out the evening (or weekend) before - your yellow bags MUST be placed in secured containers with a lid. DO NOT leave your yellow bags out on the curb prior to the day of collection (Tuesday).
Thank you for your compliance with this ordinance and for helping us keep the Borough clean!

After seven months of work, the Borough Charter Revision Commission forwarded its final report to the Board of Warden & Burgesses in mid-August. At its regular monthly meeting on August 20th, the Board unanimously approved the report, which is found here. The most significant changes in the revised charter are to reduce the number of burgesses on the Board from six to four; to consolidate commissioner duties among the five members of the Board; to make the position of clerk-treasurer an appointed rather than elected position; and to eliminate the position of tax collector. The revised charter will be on the ballot in the next Borough election in May 2019.
