Westford Recycling Commission Recommendation to Board of Selectman Approved Click here to review

At their December 9th meeting, the Westford Selectmen voted unanimously to support three new requests from the Recycling Commission:

1. Reduce the number of bags/barrels collected weekly from each household from the current 5 to 3 effective February 1, 2015

2. Recommend to residents that they buy trash containers no larger than 32 gallons when they need to replace their receptacles (The 32 gallon size is sold at both Westford hardware stores)

3. Reduce the price of bulk item stickers from $10 to $5 effective February 1st (bulk items include furniture, carpeting and other items too large to fit in a barrel)

Stay tuned for public notices on these new procedures, and more information on trash and recycling guidelines which can be found on the following link to the Recycling Commission website. Thank you residents for reducing, reusing, and recycling!
