Information on how to purchase Transfer Station stickers for 2010 went out to Southborough residents last week. You can buy them online, by mail, or in person at the DPW office. The deadline is September 15.
You’re required to have a valid sticker if you want to use the Transfer Station to get rid of trash or recycling, or if you want to visit the Swap Shop. If you enter the Transfer Station without a sticker, you can be fined $250.
The Recycling Committee camped out at the Transfer Station for a few days earlier this year to see how many people used the facility without a valid sticker. Of the 316 cars that passed through the Transfer Station on that particular Thursday-Saturday, only two did not have a sticker. Another 3 had stickers that weren’t properly displayed.
Stickers cost $110 for the first one. The second is free, and subsequent stickers cost $50. Seniors get their first two stickers at no cost.
Can anybody please explain why a resident permit holder who does not own a pick-up truck should not be able to borrow or rent one to bring refuse to the Transfer Statation?
Yet, if you pay town excise on a truck comparable to a car you can make unlimited dumps?
Good question. Perhaps they could look into a temporary 1-day sticker for SBRO resident truck rental situations. . . kind of like a burn permit
Good news – I checked with DPW head Karen Galligan and she tells me temporary passes are available:
Thanks for the info!
I wanted to post that I just called the DPW and stickers are $140 this year.
