Do you know where your property line is? Many property owners believe their property begins where their lawn meets the road, but in reality the Town right of way extends a distance beyond the edge of pavement. In most cases, property line issues come to light when a property owner tries to erect a fence, stone wall or basketball hoop on what they believe is their property. Physical obstructions in the Town right of way (with the exception of utility poles, Town signs, mailboxes, etc.) are prohibited.
The Town of Greenwich is not responsible for any household garbage collection.
There are 2 options to dispose of your garbage.
1. You can hire a private certified hauler to collect your garbage. Please see List of Licensed Waste Haulers (PDF)
2. Residents can bring trash and garbage (and recyclables) to the Holly Hill Resource Recovery Facility (PDF)(transfer station). You will need a vehicle dumping permit decal which can be obtained at no charge at the Holly Hill scale house by showing proof of residency and car ownership.
