Be sure to get to the November 14th Town Meeting and vote for the "Checkout Bad Reduction" motion. 
The purpose of this bylaw is to protect the towns unique natural beauty by removing the usage and distribution of those thin-film single-use plastic checkout bags. This also allows businesses to help promote the reusable bags. We all know they carry a lot more out of the store.

We always need volunteers!!

Water Conservation

What are rain barrels?

Rain barrels are containers used to collect rain water from the roof of a building via the gutter and downspout. The downspout is cut to a height that permits the rain water to flow into a barrel placed beneath it. The barrel should have a spigot to which a hose may be attached, and an overflow hose to direct rain water away from the foundation if rain continues after the barrel is full. Rain barrels are often made from 55-gallon food-grade plastic barrels, although they can also be made of wood. The collected water can be used to water gardens or lawns, wash cars, fill swimming pools or do other household chores.

Why use rain barrels?

Conserve water and reduce stormwater runoff: In the summer months, outdoor tasks such as watering lawns and gardens typically make up about 40% of household water use. Then with seasonal droughts and restrictions/bans on lawn watering, and the increaseing cost of water, it makes sense to use rain water instead of municipal water for outdoor watering.

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.
