Halcott Recycling and Mini Transfer Station

Featured

Located on the west side of the Halcott Highway Garage, the recycling center is always open. Separate bins are available for glass, metal and plastics #1, 2, 3, and 5. Newspaper, magazines and cardboard must be separated and placed in paper bags or tied in bundles. We are now accepting electronics for recycling. A separate shed is now on site for all acceptable electronics including: computers, CRT/LCD monitors, televisions, radios and cell phones. Help Halcott stay clean and please report any abuses.

The Town of Halcott offers a weekly drop-off service for those who do not choose to hire a hauler to pick up our garbage. Halcott residents only, that is, renters and landowners, may take bags of household waste in clear plastic bags, at $3 a bag, to the transfer station located at the Highway Garage. The hours of this mini transfer station will be 10 AM to 12 noon every Sunday. Instead of cash, we will be using punch cards. One punch card will allow the deposit of three bags of trash and may be purchased at $9 each from our Town Clerk, Pattie Warfield, 254-6441. Her hours are: 3 – 5pm Wednesdays; and 10 – 12 noon the 3rd Saturday of every month. Cards may also be purchased from Sam’s Country Store at $10 each. Punch cards will not be available at the transfer station and no trash will be accepted without a punch card. Please bear with us as we get this system up and running. Don’t forget that recyclables may also be deposited, as they have been, at same location free of charge. These must be separated, with caps removed. Following items are accepted:  newspapers, tied or placed in paper bags; magazines, tied; cardboard, tied; plastics #1,2,3,5; glass containers; aluminum cans; electronics.

The Town Board has been working hard to make this option a reality for our residents. We hope that it makes life a little easier!

The Auxiliary’s purpose is to support Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center through advocacy and awareness. They do this through various Wellness programs, blood drives, health fairs, a flea market and many other hospital, nursing home and community activities all year long. Please join me in supporting this worthwhile cause. Membersip is only $5.00 per person per year. I’ll be reaching out to many of you asking that you sign up.

Residents who are located in regions outside of the shaded regions on the map and who are interested in having broadband services extended to them in the future are encouraged to contact the MTC Customer Service to convey this interest. This feedback will be used in the pursuit of future grant funding opportunities as we work to insure all residents requesting broadband services have access to this important service.

Dear Friends:  Thank you all for the wonderful party on Sunday night.  It’s a sure sign of success when you have fun at your own party.  The evening was beautifully captured in film by amazing photographers Camille and Greg Vickers and Beechler.  Take a minute to look at our website www.townofhalcott.org to stroll through them.  Thank you so much, Greg and Camille for your images.  To me, each one is a wonderful portrait, revealing the characters that make up our Town.  Here’s to Halcott!  With love, Innes.
