Hanover: Town saves money on new contracts

Hanover is saving some big money.

The town credits sound bidding and business practices for saving more than $72,000 per year on solid waste hauling and disposal contracts, even though they’re exempt from bidding laws.

Hanover residents haul approximately 4,500 tons of solid waste to the town’s transfer station each year.

Officials said that, because of bidding, the new contracts reduce the disposal cost-per-ton to $70, a savings of $15.
