Selectboard Correspondence: Trash

To: Keith Moran, Dan Goulet, Linda Cook

I will be away this Wednesday, but wanted to note that the Lebanon dump charges $1 for every 34 lbs put into their landfill. I understand that they don't bear any trucking costs, but the spread between $1, and $5.50 can't all be attributed to hauling fees. I don't think that the recycling expenses should be born solely by trash dumpers, as this provides a huge disincentive to properly dispose of one's trash. As we recycle more and more, the tipping fees will become ever more punitive, thus driving more good citizens to dump illegally, or burn.

Please distribute this to Chip, and Steve for me.

Sincerely,

Joshua
