Transfer Station stickers: Senior drive bys; options for the rest of us (Updated)

Above: Seniors can drive around to the back of the Senior Center in July to get their new Transfer Station stickers applied. The rest of us can head to the Town House or buy them online/through the mail (photos by Susan Fitzgerald)

Tomorrow marks the first day that residents can buy new Transfer Station permits.

Current stickers don’t expire until September. But, if you’re a senior, you’ll probably want to take care of it in July. That’s when the Town Clerk will be again offering an easy drive by option during special hours. (Scroll down for those details).

According to the announcement, prices are the same this year as last. And non-senior residents again have options for purchasing the sticker online, through the mail, or in person at the Clerk’s office. (Seniors can, too. They just also have a more attractive option if they are in Town this July.)

Due to a series of unfortunate issues with the California firm that manufactured the Transfer Station stickers, we still have not received properly printed stickers. We hope (maybe I should write PRAY) to have the stickers so we can start issuing them to Seniors by noon on Monday morning July 10.

Current Transfer Station stickers are still valid until September 15.

Thank you for your patience as we work though this problem.

The stickers have arrived!

We will be issuing Transfer Station stickers on Friday starting at noon at the Senior Center – as long as the rain holds off. If it starts to rain, we’ll stop for the day for safety reasons.

Thank you for your patience!

I took advantage of the drive thru sticker option for seniors yesterday.
This is, I think, year 2 of the program and it works wonderfully.

Great idea, Jim. Love the creativity.
