Town recognized for transfer station brochure

EPSOM – The Northeast Resource Recovery Association honored the town of Merrimack with the Best Brochure Award at its annual conference and expo at The Radisson Hotel in Nashua in May.

Merrimack won based on its brochure, which included a list of materials that are accepted at its transfer station, a traffic flow key for the facility, a diagram of the recycling facility and frequently asked questions.

"From my experience, people are eager to do the right thing and recycle," said Michael Durfor, executive director of the NRRA. "But when there are uncertainties on if a material can be recycled or not, many things end up in the trash.

The brochure Merrimack created answers all questions and makes it easy to understand what can be recycled, which is helping the town keep their recycling rate strong."
