The Plymouth Board of Selectmen got an update Tuesday night on the status of a town-wide curbside trash collection program. Town Manager Melissa Arrighi told the Board that the staff is continuing to work on moving toward curbside pickup:”…and that includes that they’ve narrowed the focus down to ABC Disposal as the selected company. Now, at this point I’m not ready to enter into any contract with ABC Disposal.” But, the cost to residents has been determined: “Currently the rate that would be charged to residents is approximately $170 per year. However that’s if we have 18,000 people sign up for the program.” She was asked if any of the transfer stations would remain open? “Under the costs that I just gave you for 18,000 users, no transfer stations would remain open in the town of Plymouth.” The town manager plans a major public education program on the proposed curbside plan and has requested that several residents join the outreach campaign. Then, she will make a recommendation to the Select Board.
