Town Works on Expanding Scope of Drop-Off Center

The Town Council voted to expend $2,850 from the voter-established Reclamation Trust Fund to contribute to scheduled improvements at the Londonderry Drop-Off Center during its Monday night meeting.

The trust, formed in 2003, was created to fund the disposal of motor vehicle waste and the recycling of other wastes.

The funding will be used to clear some trees on the property, part of a larger, longer-term project aimed at expanding the scope of the facility's services.

"What we hope is that we can expand (these) opportunities in the future to include all recyclable waste - not only motor vehicles, but debris, wood and everything else," Town Manager Dave Caron said, calling it the "first step.

"(The site) needs to be upgraded to accommodate the traffic it sees on a regular basis," he concluded. 

That project, part of a number of improvements priced around $400,000, has been identified as a need in the town's capital improvement plan, Caron said.

 "The improvements will be significant - the entry and exit will be better, the (traffic) flow will be significantly improved, and you can back up to multiple containers where you can easily drop stuff in from the back of your vehicle," councilor Mike Brown said.

Brown had seen a presentation on the development in his capacity as the council's liaison to the solid waste committee, and asked Caron to have staff deliver the presentation to the council as well.

"These improvements are long overdue," Brown said. "This work is actually good work, and the fund - which we were on the council when it was created - is now paying off."

The drop-off center, which operates on Saturdays, will re-open for services this April.
