Contaminated Recyclables http://www.cheshirect.org/news/contaminated-recyclables/ 2017-11-06T15:40:00 Arnett Talbot http://www.cheshirect.org/news/contaminated-recyclables/ CONTAMINATED AND NON-RECYCLABLE MATERIALS CREATING PROBLEMS WITH AUTOMATED RECYCLING PROGRAM

 

Cheshire residents are reminded to not place contaminated or non-recyclable materials such as plastic shopping bags in recycling containers.  These items lead to additional costs or rejected loads.  Individual recycling bins that are identified to contain any non-recyclable material will not be collected by the hauler.

 

Please refrain from recycling items such as pizza boxes or unwashed cans or bottles, and return plastic shopping bags back to the store for recycling.

 

The success and cost effectiveness of this program is significantly impacted by the compliance of our residents.  Your cooperation and assistance is greatly appreciated.

 

A list of acceptable and non-acceptable materials is available here.

Improvements Made to Cheshire's Incentive Policy http://www.cheshirect.org/news/improvements-made-to-cheshires-incentive-policy/ 2017-10-20T13:44:53 Catherine Donegan http://www.cheshirect.org/news/improvements-made-to-cheshires-incentive-policy/
The Cheshire Town Council, at the request of the Economic Development Commission, recently made changes to the incentive policy to enhance the town's competitiveness with other municipalities.  Adopted in 1994, the policy provides real property tax and other assistance for companies interested in locating or expanding in Cheshire.  Projects less than $3 million will now receive real property tax assistance for 4 years (rather than 3).  Projects greater than $3 million will receive real property tax assistance for 7 years.  In both cases, tax assistance will be based on 50 percent (formerly 45) of the assessed value of the improvements to the real property.

 

For further information about possible assistance from Cheshire's incentive program, contact Economic Development Coordinator Jerry Sitko at (203) 271-6670 or jsitko@cheshirect.org .
