The Town has partnered with Discover Books, a national company creating sustainable paths for used and new books to be loved and shared in communities. Discover Books (click here to learn more) resells, redistributes, and recycles the books it collects before they end up in landfills. Check out the Transfer Station web page graphic to visualize how this works.
Look for their blue bin (expected by July 12) at the Transfer Station, where you can deposit your unwanted books - hardcover, paperbacks, textbooks, law books, magazines, etc. The only unwanted book is a phone book. You'll help the Town reduce its annual trash production and help save on disposal and hauling costs.
NOTE: You can still leave your books in the Swap Shop at the Transfer Station. Only those books that have languished for some time will move to the bin.
In anticipation of residents having a high volume of unwanted books, Discover Books' collection truck will be in front of Town Hall Saturday, July 22, 2023, from 10 am to Noon. Discover Books also offers a curbside collection program if you have a high volume. Click here to get the details.
