Pay As You Throw Presentation

.. will save Barnstable residents and visitors money and increase recycling rates!

Join us for a presentation by the Barnstable Renewable Energy Commission about Pay As You Throw:

July 9, at 7pm
Centerville Library,
Main Street, Centerville

The Barnstable Town Council has been reviewing options for trash and recycling. Our contract with Covanta (Semass) will be ending and all options mean higher fees for us. Additionally, our town has the lowest recycling percentage in the region; this actually costs us all money and means we are not doing our part to reduce waste.
Pay As You Throw is an innovative way to save us money while increasing recycling. Join us to learn about this program before your elected officials make a decision that will impact your wallet.

DO YOU KNOW:

  • RECYCLING CAN SAVE YOU AND YOUR TOWN MONEY?
  • BARNSTABLE RESIDENTS HAVE THE LOWEST RECYCLING RATE IN THIS REGION – 16%?
  • YOUR TOWN COUNCIL IS CONSIDERING NEW OPTIONS FOR TRASH DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING?
  • REGARDLESS OF THE CHANGES YOUR TRANSFER STATION STICKER OR TRASH HAULER FEES WILL INCREASE?

Recycle_Logo_copyWe have the opportunity to change the way we do business at our transfer station and with our trash-haulers.  Join us to learn more about it.

RALLY at the STATEHOUSE for State Senator DAN WOLF – JOIN US!!

August 26, 2013

DAN-WOLF-630x419We need you to help us send important messages to the Ethics Commission and those who appoint them. Join us as we rally at the statehouse and sending letters and emails insisting that this decision be revisited.

We are on the verge of losing our duly elected State Senator, elected by the people to serve the people. Despite the fact that the Ethics commission had all of the same information when he was first elected and then before the subsequent re-election, they have now told him he must resign because of his interest in Cape Air.  see Dan’s statement here

We need YOU to write letters and send emails, for information on who to contact see this document.

PLEASE CONSIDER taking some time to join us this Thursday as we come together to rally to keep our Senator:

Dear Friends,

Did you ever think that right here in Massachusetts we’d have to wage a voting rights battle?

Cape and Islands voters have put Dan Wolf in the State Senate not once, but twice. After almost 3 years of his unblemished service, the Massachusetts Ethics Commission has suddenly found Dan out of compliance. And the Commission “solution” is not only nonsensical, it is draconian. It is highly likely that next Thursday, August 29th Dan will be forced to resign from the Senate. That means the Commission will have successfully taken OUR ballots and thrown them out.

Come rally to support reform of this flawed system and to seek justice for Dan.

BUSLOADS OF FOLKS WILL BE HEADING FROM THE CAPE TO BEACON HILL ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 29TH at 9:30AM. WE’LL RALLY ON THE STATE HOUSE STEPS AT NOON.danwolf4ss

1. You can join the bus group by reservation. First come, first served. Donations for bus fare will be appreciated but are certainly not required.
2. If you want to drive, please try to carpool.
3. Bring your own signs—this IS really just us plain folks working it out!
4. Bring some water and a snack.

Make no bones about it….. we need numbers.
WE NEED YOU!

Let us know you’re coming. If you need a ride, let us know in time to help you get one.

At this writing the best way to reserve a bus slot or ask a question is to email
sutruitt@msn.com or phone 774-327-7277.

We’ll have more contact folks in the next few days and pass them along.
This is not how I planned to spend the last days of summer — but if we do it together we can make a difference.

Susan Truitt
Volunteer, Rally Organizer
