Welcome to the Town of Cheshire website.

Request to Cheshire residents:  please do not place non-recyclable materials in your green recycling bin.  These materials contaminate the entire load.  Therefore, green bins that contain non-recyclable items will not be collected.  We understand that families staying home due to the pandemic generate more trash than usual, but the excess material cannot be placed in the recycling bin.  Contaminated loads cost the taxpayers money, and endanger the recycling stream.  Please help your community by finding alternative means to dispose of your trash.  Your cooperation in this difficult time is greatly appreciated.

About Our Town ......

     Cheshire is a family-oriented community with an excellent school system, exceptional public safety, and a full range of municipal services. A wonderful place to live and work, Cheshire is a residential community located in New Haven County with a population of just over 29,000 and a land area of 33 square miles. Cheshire is close to New Haven and Hartford, and is easily accessible from Interstates 84, 91 and 691 and state routes 70, 68, and 10.

     Incorporated as a town in May of 1780, Cheshire was predominantly a rural farming community. During the past 50 years, the Town has grown into a residential suburban community. Even with significant industrial and commercial growth, Cheshire retains its rural characteristics with thousands of acres of open space. Historic homes blend with newer tree-lined neighborhoods. Local retailers provide a variety of goods and services, with commercial, industrial and agricultural businesses unobtrusively rounding out the composition of the community. In fact, the active agricultural industry has led to Cheshire’s designation as the "Bedding Plant Capital of Connecticut."

     For more specific information, please refer to the various pages within this website, or call one of the Town of Cheshire departments.
