The clear winner is the 35-gallon trash cart! Sustainable Sharon’s goal was always to promote a program that would Save Money And Reduce Trash (SMART). We are pleased that Sharon went out to bid, and we are excited to report that the 35-gallon trash cart option indeed saves money. Plus, there are reasonable options for expanding recycling opportunities.

- At the December 5th Board of Selectmen’s meeting, Selectmen McGrath and Roach both spoke in favor of adopting a 35-gallon SMART cart program.
- Town Administrator, Fred Turkington, will be presenting more comprehensive numbers in the coming days to show what residents would pay after factoring in disposal costs.
- There is still talk by town officials about expanding recycling options, e.g., cardboard drop off, extra recycling cart, weekly recycling.
- The Selectmen are likely to vote at their December 19th Board of Selectmen’s meeting.
We are excited with the direction the program is taking.
Your voice will make a difference!
Please call AND email the Selectmen before December 19th. Let them know you’re in favor of the 35-gallon SMART trash cart program with the option of a second 35-gallon cart and leave your name/address.
