Curbside Recycling and Composting Study

StudyDuring the December 1, 2020 Board of Trustees Study Session, LBA Associates, a firm specializing in solutions for sustainable waste diversion, presented the results of a five-week analysis of viable options to divert waste from the landfill. 

In particular, LBA’s feasibility study concentrated on curbside recycling and composting, including the widely adopted ‘Pay As You Throw’ pricing concept, and evaluation of the pros and cons of the single hauler method compared to the universal recycling ordinance approach. 

The Board took no action but advised Town staff to initiate a comprehensive community engagement and outreach campaign. For more about the concepts, view the study session presentation.
