Garbage Collection

 I would like to provide you with a small list of do’s and don’ts for garbage placement at the curb.

  1. No metals to be placed at the curb.
  2. If you have large items such as old beds, bureaus, couches, wooden tables, chairs, etc. the contractor will take these at the curb with the regular garbage.
  3. The contractor will allow boxes and small bags such as kitchen catchers to be placed for pick-up, along with the regular full size garbage bags.
  4. Please place your garbage at your boundary line.
  5. The contractor will be providing a 4 yard bin that can be rented by residents and businesses for dumping of construction material on job sites.  The cost to rent is $50 per bin load. The contractor will drop the bin off to you and will remove when finished.  If the bin has to be dumped before the job is finished it will be dumped on Tuesdays when the contractor is in town.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the reminder! I had meant to post this earlier…hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know.

      Jacqueline Blanchard
      Town Manager

  2. Dave Stromberg says:

    Great news about the recycling program!

  3. L Dolmage says:

    CONGRATS Jacqueline. My hope is that the town will be cleaned-up. The garbage
    left in fields consisting of disabled vehicles and other things is not very attractive in
    such a beautiful area. The hills and water are so relaxing and inviting . It would be
    much more appealing to the tourists and the local residence. I am a former resident
    and visit yearly. Wishing you all a great year and much success. L Dolmage

  4. Woody Point says:

    Thank you for your kind words about Woody Point. Clean-up around town is an ongoing issue that the council is addressing on a daily basis. We are actively promoting a cleaner and tidier town to all our residents. It is a beautiful area and we want to enhance on that beauty.

    Regards,
    Jacqueline

  5. Bill Roberts says:

    What time are the council meetings. I do not see it on the calendar.
    Thank you.
