LANDFILL PASSES ARE REQUIRED! 
As we enter the Spring clean–up season, there seems to be some confusion among a number of residents as to required policies and procedures for obtaining a Landfill pass and entry into the site. Landfill passes are available for purchase at the Town Clerk’s Office (250 Main Street) daily during regular business hours. For current Landfill Pass requirements and fee schedule please read this Landfill Pass Policy press release.

EFFECTIVE APRIL 12, 2010: YOUR VEHICLE REGISTRATION & BUILDING PERMITS ARE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE A LANDFILL VOUCHER.
