Congratulations to the residents and businesses of Sharon & Salisbury. For the third year in a row, the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority (CRRA) is recognizing Salisbury & Sharon for having the highest per capita recycling of the CRRA Mid-Connecticut project towns. The average amount of recycling per person this year was 287 lbs! this is almost an additional 10 lbs. per person than last year. Having the highest per capita recycling for three years in a row is outstanding. Thank you, and of course keep up the recycling!
May 1st the Transfer Station began accepting most #1 through #7 food grad plastics. These additional plastic containers should be placed with the rest of the plastic, metal & glass bottles & cans.
The Transfer Station Recycling & Advisory Committee (TRAC) and the Selectmen have been looking into several options for our future waste disposal.
As we look to the future, I would like each of us to think about our waste disposal habits. I would then challenge everyone to find just one more item that they can remove from the waste stream. Recycle junk mail, a metal coat hanger, or even a paper towel "tube." Let's each "Kick it up a notch."
