Water Conservation

If anybody is interested in purchasing a rain barrel, The Ashland DPW is offering them for $52 for the first 50 people. These are very handy for collecting rain water to be used for irrigation in order to conserve water purchased from the town. For more details click here.

Tire Recycling

Do you have used tires hanging around your home? Why not recycle them for FREE? If you are storing them outside, water can collect in the bottom which makes for a great place for mosquitoes to breed, and we've all been hearing about the new dangers of mosquito borne illnesses.

The Central Mass Mosquito Control Project will take tires and recycle them for you at no charge. Click here for more info.

In case you are curious to know the exact time...

Below is a widget from the time.gov web site. This widget shows the official time as measured by the U.S. atomic clock located in Boulder, Colorado, which is maintained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO). The atomic clock is said to be the most accurate time keeping device, so the time shown by it can be relied upon as official.
