Weekly Recycling On Hold Until October
Town Administrator Thomas Younger said he wants to gauge the financial impact of additional recycling before he commits to it.
The town will move to its two-barrel trash pick-up limit on July 16, but weekly recycling will have to wait until at least October.
Town Administrator Thomas Younger told selectmen on Wednesday that he wants to review town finances over the next three months to see if it can afford weekly recycling.
The town has biweekly recycling.
Some residents have lobbied for weekly recycling since the new waste reduction program took effect last October.
The Board of Health learned last month that the move from biweekly to weekly curbside pick-up of recycled materials would cost an additional $38,000 in Fiscal 2013.
Fiscal year 2013 started July 1.
