PAYT Implementation Working Group

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 appointed Sustainability Committee member and former PAYT Working Group member David Ayer to serve as chair of the Implementation Working Group. Work is expected to be completed by September 1, 2021.
