Bolton cleanup guidelines clarified
The town of Bolton is now offering free spring cleanup incentives through two programs: one for homeowners of any age, and one for senior residents.
Homeowners can come into the Bolton Town Hall and pick up a card which allows them to dispose of certain items for free at the town landfill. Items accepted at no charge during this annual promotion are up to four vehicle tires, one mattress and box spring, and one couch or loveseat or one chair. Also allowed are one VCR recorder, DVD player or television, one toilet or sink, and one throw rug, plus one pickup load of construction debris or yard brush.
Seniors can arrange for curbside pickup by calling Lisa at the Bolton to transfer station at 644-2973 to schedule the trip. The last day to make such a reservation is May 13.
Seniors are limited to depositing the equivalent of one pickup load of materials, which must be out by edge of road. Big appliances or items than can't be handled by one person are not allowed, plus no household garbage, no hazardous materials, and no metal.
