Phillipston Board of Health announces sticker program
PHILLIPSTON — In an effort to stop unauthorized dumping at the transfer station by non-residents and non-taxpayers, the Board of Health has instituted a car sticker program. The stickers will allow transfer station workers to identify vehicles that are allowed to use the transfer station.
Effective Jan. 1, 2016, all persons using the town transfer station must have a Board-of-Health-issued transfer station sticker attached to their vehicle.
The sticker will cost $25 for two years, and additional stickers for the same household will be $5 (must be same address and have the registrations for those additional vehicles). Only two additional stickers will be allowed per household.
There are three ways to obtain a sticker(s):
— Stickers will be available at the Town Hall Annex during the months of November and December on the following Saturdays: Nov. 7, 14, and 21; and Dec. 5, and 12, from 9 a.m. until noon. Residents must bring their car registration(s) and a copy of their current property tax bill.
— Stickers are available at the Board of Health office located in the Town Annex across from the town hall, Wednesday morning from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Residents must bring their car registration(s) and a copy of their property tax bill.
— Mail payment by check or money order payable to: Town of Phillipston, to the Board of Health at 50 The Common, Phillipston, MA 01331, with a copy of car registration(s) and property tax bill and a self-addressed return envelope. Requests will be processed, and stickers will be mailed back.
Stickers must be attached to the left rear of the vehicle, preferably on the bumper or rear window.
Any questions can be directed to the Board of Health office at 978-249-1735.
