PAYT Repealed - no more blue bags starting July 1.

Town Meeting was held last night at Mallett Hall (the alternate meeting place).

Article 3 of the Meeting proposed to repeal the PAYT (pay as you throw) waste disposal ordinance. The article passed by a nearly unanimous vote of attending Pownal residents.

What does this mean for you as a Pownal resident? Starting July 1, you will no longer need to put your garbage into a special blue bag for pick up. If you still have blue bags, you are free to use them, but they will not be required.


Still need bags? We have them for sale at the Town Hall.
