According to word from the Solid Waste Committee, the Windham Solid Waste recycling bins at the Town Highway Department will be removed the week of June 26. The compost bin for food waste will remain in place, as will the PlanetAid donation boxes.

And, beginning on July 6, residential recycling will be picked up curbside every week throughout Vernon, rather than every other week, on Thursdays as usual, along with household trash.

Recycling bins are available for purchase at the Town Clerk’s office for $13.00. These are the green bins that were distributed to every home when curbside recycling began. (These are not strictly required — any similar bin will do.)

Official green town trash bags are available at the Clerk’s office as well. Bags are priced at $3.50 per bag for large (30 gallons, will hold approx. 35 pounds), $2.50 per bag for small (15 gallons, will hold approximately 20 pounds); $17.50 per roll of large bags and $12.50 per roll for small bags. Bags can also be purchased at the Vernon Free Library, Vernon Treasurer’s Office, Vernon Recreation Department and Guilford Store.
