Trash Debate Looms in Wheelock

Wheelock Preview

WHEELOCK - As town meeting day approaches, the town is making preparations for July 2015. That's when a pay-as-you-go system for trash removal - already approved by the state legislature - will go into effect in both Wheelock and Sheffield. 

"The intent is good," said Stephen Amos, the vice chairman of Wheelock's select board, "to try and get more people to recycle, because that is renewable. It does cut the cost, ultimately, as a town, hauling away our garbage. So it's just getting the residents of our two communities."
The trash removal issue is one of the many issues the town will be discussing. Taxes and roads will also be up for discussion.
