Transfer Station Reopening of Services-Phase 1 (Effective 5/26/2020)

The Selectmen have decided that effective on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, there will be a phased re-opening of some of the temporarily closed services at the Transfer Station due to the COVID -19 pandemic.  This phased re-opening of some services at the Transfer Station is in concert with the guidance the Governor has given in slowly opening up the economy while still continuing to maximize the safety and welfare of our residents and employees.  Residents are reminded to keep personal spacing criteria in effect and we continue to discourage any social gatherings on site. The phase 1 changes will be posted on our town website, and will also be posted at Transfer Station and Town Offices.  Items following in bold text are the changes established for phase 1.
