 Bolton Local Opposes Pipeline

(August 28, 2014) Bolton Local joins with the Stop the Pipeline/Bolton Group in opposing the expansion of the existing Tennessee Gas pipeline by Kinder Morgan. We oppose the disruption of some of the most pristine rural farm and conservation land in Massachusetts for the installation of a pipeline for which the need is questionable and the ultimate use uncertain, and which poses dangers in the communities through which it is proposed to run. The pipeline may cost taxpayers money, in tariffs that could be passed on to Massachusetts consumers, and in property taxes that affected homeowners must continue to pay, despite the ruination of their property by the pipeline.

Our focus this year is on
Reduce - Reuse - Recycle

Bolton Local thanks all who came out last Saturday to recycle styrofoam and sneakers.  We collected more than we ever expected and deemed this event a great success.  Many of the athletic shoes will be recycled through Nike's Reuse-a-shoe program, but many more shoes were saved and donated to various charities.  ReFoamIt  was greatly impressed with our take for the day and wants to let you know that you can drop off styrofoam at their Leominster facility at 25 

Mohawk Drive most weekdays for free.  Just call first to make sure that someone is there at 508-864-8723.  Also, many thanks to Shelly from the DPW for helping to organize and spend her Saturday with us to ensure that everything went smoothly.  Hopefully we can do more events like this in the future.  Keep saving your styrofoam!
