PAY-BY-THE-BAG

Every bag of garbage that is thrown away represents a cost to the residents of any town. In Littleton this cost is borne through a "user fee" system. At the 1993 Town Meeting, Littleton Voters decided on a "pay-by-the-bag" user fee system. this system works very simply: people who generate large quantities of garbage pay more for disposal than those who generate small quantities. People who recycle pay less for garbage disposal and do not subsidize disposal for those who chose not to recycle.

You can purchase special Littleton garbage bags from any one of many local stores. ONLY these special bags will be accepted at the transfer station. the price you pay for the bags cover the cost of handling, transporting and disposing of that bag once it is filled. You have the option of recycling at "no cost" many of the things you may now be throwing away.

Trash in the special bags will be accepted at the Recycling Center, as well as all your recyclable items. We will not accept any other bags. If you prefer, you can make arrangements with a commercial trash hauler to have your trash picked up and taken directly to a disposal facility. You then pay the hauler for the pick up and disposal cost of your trash. Remember that your property taxes do NOT pay for solid waste disposal, so this is not a duplication of costs.

there is a separate fee schedule for some other materials including appliances, tires, and construction and demolition debris.
