Shrewsbury Town Members will get their chance Monday night to weigh in on the town's proposed Pay-As-You-Throw program, which would levy new trash fees and generate an additional $800,000 in annual revenue.
Since the amount has already been incorporated into the proposed town budget, Town Meeting members will have to find the money somewhere else or cut from other parts of the budget if they vote against the new fee.
If it passes, the program would go into effect Aug. 1, and would require residents to pay 75 cents for 15-gallon trash bags and $1.50 for 34-gallon trash bags. All recycling would remain free of charge.
Town Meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Oak Middle School.
