Household waste gears up for fall

Members of the Carlisle Household Waste Committee are preparing for two of their biggest events of the year: the Carlisle Household Hazardous Waste Day, on Saturday, October 14th, from 9 a.m.to1p.m. and the Foam Polystyrene Collection on Saturday, October 21st from 9 a.m. 1 p.m. Both events will take plan at the Carlisle Recycling and Transfer Station.

Residents should begin setting aside materials to prepare for both events. For the household hazardous waste day, you should gather up all your cans of spare paint and swap it for different types of paint you may need.

For the foam polystyrene collection, which is a collaborative effort with REUSIT, a Concord environmental organization, you should ensure all foam items, such as packing materials for computers and egg cartons, are spotlessly clean. (Please do not take small pieces of polystyrene more commonly termed "peanuts.")

Residents are asked to pay $4 per trash bag to help pay the cost for collection and recycling. Please take all larger items directly to the Concord Public Works Facility (accepting foam items that day until 2 p.m.).

The committee hope to have further information available on the Carlisle Community Center website ( soon. Committee members include Keith Asarkof, Department of Public Works Superintendent Gary Davis, Donald L. Rober, Jr., Robert Wallhagen, and chair Dave Comstock.
