The bulk of it

— Town Board member Scott Hughes said he is glad the town will still be providing bulk pickup to residents, even at a reduced level.

“I’m very pleased that the service will continue to move forward and be free despite a very challenging economic climate,” said Hughes. “The service has been wonderful for residents … and we do have other options in place through the transfer station and they operate 12 months a year.”

Hughes said feedback from residents about other services and programs offered by the town has always been good. He said that the town takes a lot of pride in “ensuring a wide array of programs and services” to residents while being able to do so in a cost-effective manner.

“If you’ve seen the parks and recreation guidebook, we’ve got a robust offering,” said Hughes.

A cost breakdown of the bulk waste pickup over the past four years is as follows: in 2011 it was $100,000; in 2010 it was $95,000; in2009 the total was $106,750; and in 2008 was $99,000.
