No household garbage or other trash of any kind can be accepted at the Hamburg Recycling Center. Bulky items destined for a landfill must instead be taken to the Lyme Transfer Station.  Please be aware:

  • Cameras videotape the recycling center 24/7 and the town reserves the right to file action with the State Police.
  • The town can charge fees to any residents who leave garbage, trash or unsorted recyclables at the Hamburg Recycling Center, forcing the town itself to incur the costs of transporting and properly disposing of the garbage at the Transfer Station.
  • These fees may range from $10 for up to two bags of household garbage to higher fees for landfill waste.
  • Fees are intended for one-time deposits only and not as a replacement for using the Transfer Station or garbage-pickup service from Jansky’s.
