TRASH TALKING — China and Palermo residents: second alert

by Irene Belanger

Effective March 1, 2019, and until further notice, we will not be recycling any plastic bags so there will not be a barrel at the recycling station for them. They will go into the hopper. Of course, they could be reused as wastebasket liners or other trash and then tossed in with the regular trash. Thank you for your co-operation. The good work you all do is very much appreciated and does not go unnoticed.

Also: there is a rumor out there that “Springtime is on the way”!

Keep watch in The Town Line or check on the China town office website for a date for the KSO drug drop, roadside cleanup weekend and whatever else we can come up with for spring cleaning to make life a little easier and help to keep China, Palermo and Maine roadsides nicer for all of us.

NOTICE: For safety and health reasons PLEASE DO NOT toss any medicines into the flush.

Please contact Irene 445-2349, Sheldon 445-2712, or the town office to volunteer. (Thank you to China Boy Scout Troop and their leaders as they help us each year.)

Just so you know, we are scheduled to send our first load of trash to Fiberight/Coastal in June 2019. It’s been very exciting to watch the new facility grow in Hampden. If they offer another tour and you’d like to go see the progress call me. It’s massive!

Thank you to our Transfer Station attendants. They take the extra time and energy to get training to keep up with whatever is happening in the wonderful world of trash as well as all safety sessions to keep themselves and all of us safe.
