Stickers now available for Recycling Center
WILTON – Vehicle identification stickers are now available at the Recycling Center.
The vehicle has to be registered in one of the five member towns: Wilton, Lyndeborough, Mason, Greenville or Temple. Stickers are limited to two per family and will be valid through Dec. 31, 2018. There is no cost for the sticker.
Leased vehicles will require a proof of residency.
All users of the center will need a sticker by Jan. 1.
There will be signs at the center with information on obtaining a sticker, and information will be posted on the town website as a one-page document, "Recycling Center Sticker Initiative – what you should know."
The program was initiated by selectmen at the suggestion of Public Works Director Steve Elliott, who said there were "a number of people" using the center from other towns. Since the center has to pay to have trash hauled away, nonresidents are costing the town money.
In related business, the selectmen are considering reforming the Recycling Committee, a group named some years ago to encourage people to use the Recycling Center and to improve its operations.
Lyndeborough Selectman Mark Schultz and Town Administrator Russ Boland met with Wilton selectmen on Sept. 19 to discuss the committee. Schultz, who had been named to the committee, said Lyndeborough wants to be more involved because, although Wilton owns and operates the center, "Lyndeborough gives a big chunk of money."
Elliott said the "main purpose of the committee should be recycling."
Schultz said he was interested in recycling, but also about maintaining costs.
