The Town of Conway does not have a noise ordinance or noise by-law. If someone has a complaint concerning noise, it can be filed with the Conway Police Department under “Disturbing the Peace” – Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 272, Section 53, the Board of Health under “Creating a Nuisance” – Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 111, Section 122 or, if applicable, the Building Inspector (774-3167 x2) under “Prohibited Uses” (see By-laws—Protective).
In August, residents using the transfer station will be required to purchase a dated and numbered sticker for their vehicle. Stickers will change annually, following the fiscal year, and will cost $10 each. They will be available at the Transfer Station – residents may be required to provide the attendant with proof of residence. Stickers will also be available from the Town Clerk’s office either in person (Tue., Thur., and Fri. a.m. 9-12) or by mail with SASE (P. O. Box 240, Conway, MA 01341).
This return to Annual Transfer Station Stickers is our first step in an effort to reduce trash totals, as it has come to our attention that the high trash total in Conway is due, in part, to trash coming in from a significant number of individuals who no longer live in Conway, but still have their town stickers and visit to use our Residents-Only “free” trash disposal. Residents who have lived in Conway for 30 years or more may recognize the return to matching dated stickers with actual households.
For the moment, Pay-As-You-Throw will be waiting in the wings. Meanwhile, let’s see if we can boost our recycling totals.
