COMPOST PROGRAM SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY

We regret to announce that our very popular compost program will have to be suspended immediately, as of today, August 3rd, 2021, and indefinitely, due to an issue with our vendor. We will provide updates as soon as we have any, and do apologize for the inconvenience.

If you are interested in composting at home, please visit the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District, of which we are a member, to find out how to purchase a discounted compost bin.

Annual Transfer Station Stickers Now Available

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.
