Town seeks recycling coordinator

Continue reading below

With the town’s recent implementation of a pay-as-you-throw trash program, it is seeking a recycling coordinator. The coordinator would report to the Board of Health and receive an annual compensation of $1,500, manage and promote the town’s recycling program with residents and town employees, apply for grants, and attend monthly Board of Health meetings. The deadline for applications is Feb. 19. The town entered into a partnership with Georgetown-based G. Mello Disposal on Jan. 1, with the company taking over management of the town transfer station on Boston Road. The town eliminated the $175 flat-rate trash sticker program, and now charges $2 for large black bags up to 35 gallons and $1 for small white kitchen bags. The cost to dispose of other items, such as sofas, tires, and mattresses, will range from $5 to $30, with a per-roll charge for carpets and flat rates per cubic yard for construction debris and shingles. Recycling is free. The town and G. Mello will split the net income from the operation.
