TOWN BOARD MEETINGS
Thanks to Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST), some of our technical difficulties have been addressed. We still are not able to post agendas before the meeting but we are able to post minutes after. Thanks for your patience.
Keene Transfer Station is now using Zero-Sort Recycling. Start saving tipping fees by recycling more, instead of throwing it away, you will be able to put more recyclables in the Zero-Sort compactor: magazines and phone books, newspapers, file folders and office paper, mail and greeting cards, all plastic containers (#1-7), large rigid plastics, metal cans and glass bottles and jars. Separate containers will be available for cardboard and boxboards and for metal (consider putting your metal cans here) to be picked up by Casella and treated as a revenue.
ABSOLUTELY NO PLASTIC BAGS CAN BE PUT INTO THE ZERO-SORT COMPACTOR!!!
Zero-Sort Recycling Guides are available at the Transfer Station, Town Hall, Keene and Keene Valley Libraries, Valley Grocery and McDonough's Valley Hardware.
