Changes Coming to the Chelsea Transfer Station

The Town of Chelsea Selectboard is excited to announce upcoming enhancements to the Chelsea Transfer Station’s payment structure, set to take effect on January 1, 2024. The proposed modifications aim to streamline operations and ensure the sustainability of the Transfer Station. In the spirit of community involvement and to ensure these changes are tailored to meet your needs, we invite all Chelsea residents to attend the Selectboard meeting November 7, 2023, at 6:30 PM, at the Chelsea Town Hall.

What’s Changing?

1. Cash and check will no longer be accepted at the Transfer Station. Pre-purchased punch cards will be required for waste disposal.

2. Annual recycling stickers must be pre-purchased and shown to the Transfer Station Attendant for use of recycling services. 

(For many years, our Transfer Station has operated at a deficit, with recycling costs reaching $22,719 in fiscal year 2022. At a cost of $40 per sticker, this equates to less than $1 per week for recycling.)

*Note, punch cards and annual stickers will be available for purchase at Will’s store or the Town Clerk’s office.

3. Various items accepted at the Transfer Station will see minor changes in pricing.

Your input is invaluable in shaping the future of the Chelsea Transfer Station. This public meeting on November 7, 2023, is your opportunity to express your thoughts, ask questions, and be an integral part of the discussion. We aim to make this transition as smooth as possible and need your input to achieve this goal.
