Volunteers Needed for Styrofoam Recycling

 

Volunteers are needed to help receive, sort, and pack styrofoam at the Medfield Transfer Station on Saturday, May 18.  Since only clean, white Expanded Polystyrene (#6)  packing blocks and coolers can be accepted for recycling, all foam collected must be inspected before it is packed.   Residents should remove cardboard, glues, tapes, labels, and stickers before bringing foam for recycling.  No take-out food containers are accepted, as guidelines for recycling are strict in order to clean up the process and final product of styrofoam recycling.

 

Please sign up to help at  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0448aaa623a4f49-styrofoam6 or call Barb Meyer for more information 508-359-9613.

Note: popped bubble wrap can be recycled in the bins for plastic bags at the Transfer Station  (near the single-stream recycling) and at large-chain grocery stores.  Clean packing peanuts will not be accepted but can be reused at Express Business Center 258A Main St., Medfield, 508-359-7444 or  Postal Center 14 Milliston Rd B, Millis, 508-376-1200.

Resolve in 2019 to get more involved in your community

The following Town of Medfield committees are looking for new members:

  • Medfield Energy Committee 
  • Conservation Committee
  • Council on Aging 
  • Master Planning Committee
  • Transfer Station and Recycling Committee

 

The Master Planning Committee is only just forming, so joining now gets you in from its first meeting – then lay out for the rest of us how the town should both develop and look in the future.

Swap

The Swap area at the transfer station gets more and more organized each year. It is looking really good this year.

MTS Sunday Hours and Storm Debris

Due to this past weekend’s rain/wind storm, many residents of the town have a great deal of storm debris littered across their properties. For convenience, the Medfield Transfer Station will open for the next two consecutive Sundays March 11th and March 18th (normal working hours 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) to give an opportunity for residents to dispose of their STORM DEBRIS ONLY.

PLEASE NOTE: The Transfer Station will not be accepting any solid waste or recycling material or offer any other service except Storm Debris Disposal on those two Sundays listed above. The Department of Public Works has picked up most storm debris within the right-of-way over the past few days. Please do not bring any storm debris to the roadway edge.

This is one of the email alerts the town now sends out to those who sign up on-line –
