    That's right our town did not pass the tax over ride so one causulty is the town brush connection area is being closed.
    This amounts for about 3 cords of scrounded wood every year. What a bummer. the end result will more people dumping in the woods. Like all good intentions it starts out well, then people abuse the privledge. Common house hold trash starts appearing,
    Very hard to chip up Washer machines ect. Some alway abuse and ruin it for the others. Now it has to be to be monitored and the monitoring fell to the budget cutback axe

    That's got to be frustrating. Locally, when the county switched from the free, local dump to a pay-per-ton transfer station, we saw illegal dumping go up big time. Sometimes you'll see the stuff just dumped along the roadside. Folks can be pretty rude at times.

    Or you could be from my town.

    Have a town dump and it is still open.
    Big trash hauler signs a contract with the town, that should be to the towns benefit right?

    We now have to pay for trash removal?

    Elk, how many "townies" (DPW, selectman etc.) have woodburning devices :)
