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.

Transfer Station opens early on Fridays

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.

Styrofoam Saturday

This from Medfield Green –

This Saturday is the third week of Medfield Green Month

9-1 at the Transfer Station

 

 

Styrofoam – Have you been stockpiling Styrofoam?  We thank you and this Saturday is the day to bring it to the Transfer Station.

 

We will accept packing blocks, foam coolers, clean WHITE produce and meat trays, take out containers, hot cups such as Dunkin’ Donuts , Honey Dew and Cumberland Farms (without paper or cardboard infused), clean, WHITE foam egg cartons and trays.  Please clean all food/beverage containers and remove any labels or stickers.  No peanuts or bubble wrap.  Next Styrofoam collection planned for October, 2017. Details to follow.

 

NEW:  Unfortunately, we can’t accept colored foam trays because the vendor no longer accepts them due to difficulty in spotting out pieces contaminated by food as opposed to white foam –  however, the art teachers at the elementary schools would love to take the clean, colored foam trays and Colleen Sullivan has very generously offered to transport them to the schools.  If you do have colored trays, please clean them well and either drop them at Memorial, Dale or Wheelock or bring them on Saturday.

 

Please take clean, reusable Styrofoam peanuts to Express Business Center (258A Main St., Medfield), Postal Center (14 Milliston Rd, Millis, MA) or the UPS Store (689 Main St., Rt 1A Marketplace, Walpole).  Fully popped bubble wrap and packing pillows can be recycled every week with plastic bags in the bins at the front of the single stream recycling compactors.

 

The Friends of Medfield Library will be collecting books, CDs and DVDs (no encyclopedias) to help stock their new and improved space at the library.  The Grand Opening will be on May 30th. 

 

 

 

 

See you at the Transfer Station – the place to be in May
