Transfer station stickers now sold in-person at Municipal Maintenance
Transfer station stickers are now being sold in-person at the town Municipal Maintenance building at 95 Charge Pond Road.
The stickers are available at the maintenance building Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Town Administrator Derek Sullivan said during the Jan. 19 Selectmen’s meeting. Because there is not enough staff, he said stickers will not be sold in-person on the weekends.
Transfer station stickers cost $125 for the first vehicle and $60 for an additional vehicle. Carver residents may purchase stickers for $140 for the first vehicle and $60 for additional vehicles.
Residents can also order transfer station stickers or opt out of curbside pick-up online, here: https://www.wareham.ma.us/trash-services. Stickers purchased online will be mailed to the purchaser’s home.
The yearly price for curbside pick-up will be $365 through the town. The cost of curbside hauling will be split into two billing cycles. Because the program won’t start until April, the first billing cycle will be prorated. The first bill, to be issued in June, will be for $91.25, the cost for the first three months of the program. The second bill will cover the last six months of the year for $182.50.
Those who purchase transfer station stickers will have that cost credited toward the cost of curbside hauling.
Town trash bags are now for sale at Shaws (127 Marion Road), Onset Village Market (231 Onset Ave) and Aubuchon Hardware (137 Marion Road). The Municipal Maintenance Department will also be selling bags from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday and the second and fourth Saturday of the month. Cash and check only — checks preferred. Bags are soon expected to be sold at Stop & Shop, CVS and Home Depot as well.
Tuesday, Jan. 12 was the first day that the town trash bags were required at the transfer station.
