Solid Waste & Recycling Committee Charge: 

Promote practices which reduce the solid waste generated by the Town. The goal will be met by focusing on recycling programs, waste disposal programs, and education. Specific tasks will include but not limited to: 1. Maintaining current recycling programs. 2. Generating new recycling opportunities. 3. Working with Regional Waste Systems to reduce tonnage generated by the town thereby reducing town costs. 4. Educating the town about the implementation of the above. When there is a permanent vacancy, the Select Board shall, as soon as possible, appoint a person to serve for a one year term. The Select Board will advise the Chair of the potential candidate before appointing this new member. The Chairperson shall call meetings of the committee which will meet monthly or as needed. A quorum of the Committee is necessary to conduct an official meeting and shall consist of 2/3 of the membership. Agendas & minutes of each meeting shall be submitted to the Town Clerk.
