New charges for the disposal of construction and demolition (C&D) waste were outlined on Friday's "Portsmouth this Week" TV show.
Guests on the show included Town Administrator John Klimm discussing the status of several ongoing town projects, and Town Council Vice President Judi Stavens and Paul Ross of the Recycling Committee, who provided details of the new disposal charges. Citing past abuses of the transfer station rules about C&D disposal by contractors, Stavens and Ross described a new $75 per load fee for disposing of C&D waste. In return for this fee, to be paid at the Portsmouth Town Hall, contractors receive a pass which must be turned in at the transfer station when used. Watch the show for more details.
This weekly TV show airs on Public Access (Cox channel 18) on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and can be viewed by clicking on the video link above or on links from the Town or PEDC websites.
