A Trash Collection Question

Several questions, actually:

Will trash be collected on Wednesday for A households, or will it be next week?

Is there a specific bucket to be used for compost, as is compost collected every week?

Which colored bags are for which product, and must they be in containers, or free standing?

 

Thanks!

Help for Houston?

Does anyone know of any group effort in town to get supplies to the folks affected by Hurricane Harvey?

I know that there is a dire need for both children's and adult diapers and wipes; underwear of all sizes and tampons and sanitarty pads.

These are all vital needs that are not supplied by shelters or large scale aid organizations.

I'm happy to help with some type of effort if people are interested. I've already donated to several on the ground local organizations but these people are going to need help and supplies for a very long time. It would seem that Brattleboro - having been through the destruction of a hurricane ( although certainly not the unimaginable devastation that has happenedin Texas) -should be good place to get a town wide effort going.

SeVWA's 2017 E. coli Monitoring of Local Rivers Wrapped Up August 30th

The Southeastern Vermont Watershed Alliance (SeVWA) finished its monitoring program for the summer of 2017 on Wednesday, August 30th. Volunteers this year collected samples from 34 sites on nine rivers and streams every other week throughout the summer. This year, we had sites on the West River, Flood Brook, North Branch Ball Mountain Brook, Rock River, Williams River (including the Middle Branch), Saxtons River, East Putney Brook, Sacketts Brook, and Whetstone Brook.

The days leading up to August 30th were chilly but humid, with the majority of sites experiencing very small amounts of rainfall in the 24 hours before samples were collected. Most of our sites tested below the “suitability for swimming” standard set by the State of Vermont and the US Environmental Protection Agency. The conditions in the 24-48 hours leading up to testing set the stage for safe conditions for swimming and boating. Because heavy rains can cause spikes in bacteria, is generally recommended to wait 24-48 hours after a significant rainfall to resume swimming in lakes and streams.

Dover?

Does anyone know if Dover is OK?

He used to post regularly, but seems to have stopped months ago. During the time he was active on ibrattleboro, I spoke with him on the phone a couple of times, but since then I have lost his telephone number.
