Pay As You Throw Implementation Working Group

The Select Board is expecting to appoint the committee this month. Apply ASAP for consideration on May 11th.

On April 13, 2021, the Select Board accepted a recommendation from the Pay As You Throw Working Group to bring forward a Pay As You Throw (PAYT) program for Weston to begin in the fall of 2021.  The Implementation Working Group has been charged with implementing the new  program with municipal staff to ensure a smooth transition to PAYT at the Transfer Station.  

The Working Group shall consist of five members and include ex officio members from the previous working group, the Town Manager's office, and representative(s) from the Department of Public Works in a non-voting, advisory capacity. The Implementation Working Group will have additional support from the Sustainability Coordinator, the Finance Director, and consultant/advisors. 

The Select Board is looking for four at-large members from the community to assist in this effort. This is a short-term committee and work is expected to start this month. Please forward your interest via the online volunteer application and anticipate attending the Select Board meeting on May 11th.
