Transfer Station Manager Proposes Anti-Littering Ordinance by Barbara O’Brien Illegal dumping and the littering of solid
waste are both against New Hampshire Law, but unfortunately, a lot of people still engage in such behavior, creating a mess for someone else to clean up, as well as a possible threat to the environment. Windham Transfer and Recycling Station Manager Dave Poulson wants to re-enforce State regulations, by creating a local ordinance to help convince people that dumping trash illegally is not the thing to do.
“The key to any successful litter
prevention program is public buy-in and participation,” Poulson told town officials on November 1. “We need to ensure sufficient solid waste receptacles are available in public locations, including dedicated recycling containers,” he explained. “We also need spring and fall clean-up days and to engage the public to participate.” Poulson also said he wants to encourage the Recreation Department, as well as all civic organizations to become involved and promote the anti-littering program and, therefore, instill community pride.
“Why does illegal dumping or littering
occur?” Poulson asked. There are actually several reasons for this illegal activity, he explained, including: • The cost of proper disposal of solid
waste being considered too expensive; • Restrictions on the acceptance of certain waste products at official disposal facilities; • Rural non-policed areas appearing as
attractive or accessible dumping grounds; • People being apathetic or not wanting to adhere to a structured process.
“What should we do to keep Windham
litter-free?” Poulson, then, asked. Answers included: • Recycling and using receptacles; • Composting or mulching yard waste; • Disposing of solid waste at a regulated/ permitted facility; • Posting and restricting access to rural properties; • Taking an active interest in pollution abatement and environmental protection; • Reporting illegal dumping or littering to the police department; • Forming community action groups; • Promoting and participating in community clean-up days; • Promoting, by example, and policing
outside areas that are visited.
In an effort to promote litter prevention and reduce illegal dumping, Poulson urges residents and visitors to dispose of waste properly. “Our parks and recreational areas are very important assets to the community and it is everyone’s obligation to keep them litter-free,” he emphasized. “As you utilize these sites, please locate and use trash and recycling receptacles or take your refuse home after your outing.” “We ask that the general public and sporting organizations endorse this civic responsibility. Let us all make a concerted effort to keep Windham a beautiful place to live and visit,” Poulson said. Town Administrator David Sullivan agrees
with Poulson. When Poulson introduced his idea to selectmen, a proposal that includes posting signs and the establishment of a fine system, Sullivan said that “this puts more teeth into the [proposed] ordinance.” Selectmen are expected to review the proposal drawn up by Poulson, and then bring the issue back to a future board meeting. “I look forward to a board session to approve the [proposed] ordinance and to endorse the program,” Poulson said.
Hunter Safety System (HSS) announced a voluntary recall
of carabiners. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. There are about 16,000 recalled units sold at outdoor hunting retailers and directly from the company via telephone and the company’s Website at www. huntersafetysystem.com
from June 2010 through September 2010 for about $100. The hazard is the pins in the carabiners can detach, causing a climbing strap to break free from the safety harness. This can result in the climber falling. Description: The 2010 Year HSS Ultra-Lite carabiners were supplied with the HSS-300 Ultra-Lite full body climbing safety harness. The carabiners are black with a pin sticking out of the gate. They have “CB20101” stamped on the side opposite the gate. For additional information, contact Hunter Safety System toll- free at (877) 296-3528 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Website at www.hssvest.com

Windham’s Newest Plaza to Open Soon
“This is my brother’s, Howie, and my second plaza in Windham” continued Ralph Glynn. “Whereas our original plaza hosts a full serve gas station, this plaza on RT 111 will host 12 self serve pumps, which will be open 24 hours. Our grocery store will not only provide the usual items found in a typical grocery store, we have also partnered with T J Subs from Pelham to offer carved roast beef, subs, and pizza.” The new gas station will also have two

The local officials have been very helpful with our project, and hopefully, we will be open for business early December.”

Utility Appraisal -continued from front page Selectman Roger Hohenberger recommended going out to bid on the
appraisal, comparing a minimum of three “experts.” “Sansoucy is, by far, the expert in this area,” Sullivan responded. Selectmen voted unanimously (4 to 0) to put the proposed appraisal
of all utility property in the Town of Windham out to competitive bid. Voting in favor of going out to bid were Chairman Charles McMahon, Vice Chairman Bruce Breton, Roger Hohenberger, and Ross McLeod. Selectman Galen Stearns did not attend this meeting. When questioned as to whether or not utility prices will rise for
customers, as a result of an increased assessment, Norman explained that this could not happen without a utility company first going through the Utility Commission for approval.
