This town board's a dump

NORTHBOROUGH

In light of the increasing costs of the pay as you throw trash program, the Board of Selectmen has agreed to form a group to study garbage and will over the next few weeks determine its scope and goals.

The board will on Monday share their own individual visions and time frame for the Solid Waste Citizens Study Group and come up with a unified vision at its July 16 meeting, Town Administrator Barry Brenner said. The group would be comprised of four residents, two members of the Recycling Committee and a selectmen representative.

Pay as you throw has been in place for four years, but the fees have not been enough to cover the cost of the service.
