MATTRESS RECYCLING UPDATE

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Lyme has upgraded the mattress recycling program at its Brush Hill Road landfill. Residents wishing to dispose of old mattresses and box springs may now do so free of charge if the items are clean and in good condition. A covered roll off container has been provided through the state’s mattress recycling program making it possible to waive disposal charges.

There will still be a $15.00 disposal charge levied for box springs and mattresses which do not meet the recycling standard. The fee will also apply to couches and other related items.

The landfill is open Monday, Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. in the afternoon. It is closed on holidays.

Lyme Begins Summer Traffic Control Program

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

The Lyme Board of Selectmen has arranged for period traffic control/speeding enforcement this summer in conjunction with Troop F of the Connecticut State Police.

Coverage will include both state and local roads and occur randomly throughout the summer in an effort to curtail a growing speeding problem.

Please obey posted limits and drive courteously to avoid receiving a citation.
