    I hope the powers that be realize what an asset the transfer station is to this town. It represents the true meaning of community – a real place to see your friends and neighbors while doing an otherwise mundane chore – getting rid of your trash! The transfer station is well run. Perhaps they can look into receiving money for the metal or cutting the hours some, but please, don’t get rid of it!

    Thanks for the comment on the site Lisa. That’s interesting I hadn’t thought of the transfer station as a community building tool like that. I haven’t been following the details, are they contemplating closing it?

    There is apparently a meeting this Wed at the community center – I heard some people talking at the transfer station on Saturday – they said a committee has been formed to analyze if we need it. Apparently it’s costing a lot of money (like everything in every town, it all costs money to run). Someone on the committee really wants it closed. I bet they don’t use it. I don’t use the schools, or the town pool, but I pay for those because that’s how it is – that’s the cost of running the town you live in. The thought of having to pay Paines to pick up my trash every week stinks!

    I think I remember them upping the cost significantly for using the transfer station lately. How does that cost compare to the pick-up garbage services do you know?

    I live in a condo, so the garbage pick-up is a part of the condo contract. Thank you very much for the heads up on the meeting and thank you for being involved with the community on these types of things.

    Local leaders can’t be blamed for not making informed decisions if we as citizens don’t share our thoughts and experiences. It’s too bad that often we don’t know what is happening until it has already happened and it’s always harder to undo what has been done. If you get any more details on the meeting or plans, please let us know.

    The rates are $100 a year now, about a 20 dollar jump, still not bad. At last check the Paines rate is about 200 or more to include recycling. I’m not sure where the meetings are publicized, but I believe it’s at 5:30 or perhaps 7 pm at the community center this Wednesday.

    Just realized it was on this site that I saw it talked about – right up top. Sorry about that.
