Recycling Grants Awarded

Alstead was awarded $1,800 to help with the purchase two Open-Top Roll-off Containers. The award was presented to Ernie Perry, Public Works Director by John Dumais, NH Grocers Association/NH the Beautiful. Also present was Mike Durfor, Northeast Resource Recovery Assoc.

Linda Christie says: “Langdon is now using Alstead’s Transfer Station so we are now generating more recycling materials. With the purchase of these two new containers we will be separating materials further, thus generating more revenue.”


New Durham was awarded $4,000 to help with the purchase of an A300 Bobcat Steer Loader. The check was presented to Joseph Bloskey, Solid Waste Facility Foreman by John Dumais, NH Grocers Assoc/NH the Beautiful. Also present were: Cathy Orlowicz, Office Manager, Theresa Jarvis, Chair, Board of Selectmen and Adam Clark, Northeast Resource Recovery Assoc.

Mark Fuller, Road Agent says this new Steer Loader will make the operations at the Solid Waste Facility more efficient and substantially reduce time lost due to break downs.


Moultonborough¬†was awarded $4,500 to help purchase two vertical balers. The award was presented to Scott Kimmond, Moultonborough PW Director by Larry Melanson, Coca-Cola/NH the Beautiful. Also present were: Scott Greenwood, Moultonborough Supervisor W.M.F. and Mike Durfor, NRRA. “The purchase of these two vertical balers has enabled us to bale commodities as we go vs. finding an area to store recyclables until a baler is available. We have increased our recyclables while decreasing our MSW by simply enforcing a mandatory recycling ordinance”, said Scott Greenwood.


Ossipee was awarded $9,500 to help with the purchase of two compactors and a vertical baler. The award was presented to the Town of Ossipee by John Dumais, NH Grocers Assoc/NH the Beautiful. Also present were: Adam Clark, Northeast Resource Recovery Assoc., Ron Davis, Supt. Ossipee SW Facility, Kathleen Maloney, Selectperson, Harry Merrow, Chair, Board of Selectmen, E. Morton Leavitt, Selectmen, Brad Harriman, PW Director.

Brad Harriman, PW Director says “that the town closed down and dismantled its incinerator and adopted a Mandatory Separation policy. Everything is working extremely well and the recycling is being accepted very well by everybody.” This new equipment will play a large part in providing the operators to be more efficient and it will strengthen Ossipee’s operating capacity.


Tuftonboro¬†was awarded $2,000 to help purchase three 40′ storage containers and a pallet scale. The check was presented to Tuftonboro by John Dumais, NH Grocers Assoc/NH the Beautiful. Also present were: Adam Clark, Northeast Resource Recovery Assoc, Darren Medeiros, Tuftonboro Transfer Station Operator, Michele Cole, Recycling Asst., Daniel Duffy, Chair, Board of Selectmen. Tuftonboro will use the containers to keep their recyclables clean and dry, which will enable them to maintain a better quality of material which will yield a higher market value. It will also allow them to store more recyclables thereby saving on transportation costs.

Darren Medeiros said, “These containers have extended our capabilities for stockpiling baled cardboard, aluminum and steel to be transported from our facility to NRRA. This practice has proven economically beneficial to the town by reducing transport fees”. The pallet scale will assist the Town in keeping accurate bale weights for increased efficiency.


Wolfeboro was awarded $5,000 to help purchase a John Deere 310Se Backhoe. Larry Melanson, Coca-Cola/New Hampshire the Beautiful (NHtB) presented the award to: Sarah Silk, Vice-Chair Wolfeboro Board of Selectmen, Steve Steadman, SW Facility Operator, David Owen, Town Manager and Linda Murray, Chair Board of Selectmen.
