This from Rachel Brown of the town’s Transfer Station and Recycling Committee –
The Medfield Transfer Station and Recycling Committee (TSARC) is looking for up to 3 additional members. The committee works to minimize the amount of trash incinerated and also to reduce costs while encouraging the principals of “reduce, reuse and recycle.” The committee meets monthly, usually on the second Monday of the month at 10am.
This year the committee will work on three initiatives in addition to the topics that are regularly on our agenda such as recycling rates, organics collection and the swap.
The first is to explore the option of curb-side pick up in town. This is taking a priority this year as nearly half of the residents indicated that they would like to know more about this when they completed the transfer station sticker renewal survey. There are many areas to think through on this topic! If you have questions about this, join us!
The second project is to look into the options for getting recycling barrels placed next to trash barrels at public spaces in town.
The third project is to see if we can keep mattress recycling at the transfer station once the MassDEP grant that is currently funding that program has ended (1/31/18).
As you can see we have a variety of important topics on our agenda this year and could use residents’ help. If residents are interested but don’t want to formally join the committee, there is a role for you too!
For more information or to express your interest, contact Megan Sullivan, TSARC Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next meeting of the TSARC is Monday October 16th.
