Selectmen thinking about raising transfer station fees

BEACON FALLS — The Board of Selectmen is considering raising fees to dispose of items at the transfer station.

Residents can use the transfer station to dispose of items such as mattresses, carpeting, scrap metal, and waste oil if they have purchased a proof of residence sticker from the town. The stickers cost $2.

Certain items cost more to drop off at the station. Car tires and propane tanks cost $5. Large truck tires and Freon items, such as refrigerators and air conditioning units, cost $10 to drop off.

The board is considering meeting during the last week of June to discuss increasing the fees.
