THE TROUBLE WITH ALUMINUM CANS
In the past, we have had a separate collection area for aluminum cans to support the library at the NSCS. Due to repeated problems with theft and dumping of household garbage in the aluminum can enclosure, we no longer have a separate collection. Aluminum cans should be put in the container recycling bin.
**If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall or ask the attendant on duty.**
