Bartlett Jackson Transfer Station renovations are underway

Bartlett and Jackson selectmen have announced that the new recycling building project — approved at the annual meetings for both towns in March — is underway at the transfer station.

Over the next four to six weeks, work will be ongoing, and although the majority of the major disruption will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays when the facility is closed, some work will be necessary during regular business hours in order to have Phase I completed by winter.

Temporary dumping areas and road traffic measures will be in place,  "and every effort will be made to indicate where and what should happen and how to get to the appropriate location," a statement by the selectmen said.

The "Dump Store" will also be closed during this period.

"Patrons' patience and cooperation with the staff of the facility and those working on the project will be appreciated and will help facilitate a smooth operation which will result in improvements to the facility," the statement said.

If people have questions, they are asked to contact the Bartlett selectmen at (603) 356-2950 or the Jackson selectmen at (603) 383-4223.
