Ridgefield Town Roads are now treated (during winter months) with an innovative, environmentally friendly, de-icing product called ICE B' GONE -- A SUGAR COATED SALT. Sugars added to salt in specific proportions significantly lower the working temperature of chloride salt, allowing longer working time and greatly reducing corrosion. Click on the link to read why our roads are safer this winter.

Department Responsibilities:

  • Highway Department --  provides routine repair and maintenance on all Town roads, snow and ice control during the winter months, the removal of accumulated winter sand / debris by the Department's sweeping operations plus the cleaning and repairing of drainage systems and structures. 

  • Transfer Station -- the station accepts, at a fee, solid waste, brush / leaves and recyclables. E- Waste is also accepted at no charge. Open Monday - Saturday 7:30 am - 3:00 pm. (203) 431-4137

  • Recycling Center -- the center accepts, free of charge, only materials that may be recycled. Open Tuesday - Saturday 7:30 am - 3:00 pm.  (203) 431-2343

  • Questions about State Roads -- click on this link for a list of State Roads -- call the State Department of Transportation (DOT) at (203) 797-4157 for questions or repair requests. The DOT is responsible for the maintenance of these roads and sidewalks as well as trees in their right-of-way.
