March 20, 2020 - Disposal of Sanitation and Cleaning Products

During this coronavirus outbreak, we know that almost every citizen and business have increased cleaning and sanitation practices especially for high touch common areas like doorknobs, light switches, counter tops, etc., and the Town greatly appreciates your efforts! We are doing the same thing at our facilities.

However, some of these products can be very harmful to our biological treatment system at the wastewater treatment plant. All we ask is that any disinfectant, wipes and paper towels used in cleaning be put in the trash and not into the sewer system.
