As of December 31, the transfer station will no longer be accepting non - metal furniture related items such as carpet, sofas, chairs, mattresses, etc. and other bulky items that are normally deposited in the trash compactor for a fee. All these items will be accepted for the same fee at the Town's Contractors facility, Lenox Valley WTF, at 64-68 Willow Creek Road in Lenoxdale. Their hours are Mon. - Fri., 7am - 4pm, Sat. 7am - 12 noon.; 413-637-1101.
By eliminating these items from the compactor, it allows more room for common trash which will result in more cost efficiency as the Town is billed for not only disposal per ton but also transport of each load as well. Also, with the hours of operation of the Lenox facility, this will offer residents much more flexibility to dispose of these items.
Also, due to a recent procedural change, the MRF recycling center in Springfield is now accepting flattened bottles (plastic) and cans. Please consider this when you are sorting your recyclables, although note that glass containers should not be broken.
Thank you for your cooperation!
