At a recent meeting of Waterville Valley Resort Association business members, Town Manager Mark Decoteau announced that the Town of Waterville Valley has approved single-stream cycling.
According to a handout distributed by Decoteau, Casella’s “Zero-Sort Recycling” is a single bin recycling service that “puts more of your stuff back into the world and less of it into the landfill.” There’s no need to separate or sort materials. It all goes into the same bin.
Decoteau said that detailed information will be sent to property owners with the next mailing of the water/sewer bills. The town is building a central recycling center located near the Wastewater Treatment facility. Property owners will bring their recyclable trash there. Commercial properties will be setting up new enclosures or modifying existing. The hope is to open the new recycling facility by the end of November 2012.
