COVID 19 TRANSFER STATION CHANGES

Due to the potential for spreading the COVID 10 virus, the Transfer Station will NOT be accepting clothing for Planet Aid and the Dump Store will be closed. We will also be practicing social distancing, so please excuse our long distance interactions and possible yelling of directions to you.

UPDATE – Tuesday, March 24, 2020 will be the LAST DAY for the immediate future that the Bartlett Transfer Station will be accepting any items that you must PAY A FEE to deposit such as TV’s, refrigerators, construction debris, etc. in order to minimize person to person contact for the protection of the public and our employees. For the time being, Bartlett will continue to accept and require mandatory recycling as well as regular household trash.

UPDATE – Friday, March 27, 2020 -Transfer Station stickers are MANDATORY.

The recent adherence to displaying a transfer station sticker is not a new policy – residents and taxpayers have always been required to display a sticker when using the facility.

Due to some facilities closing and/or going to limited hours, people from other areas or states are coming to the Bartlett Transfer Station and attempting to use our facility.

We want to make sure that the Bartlett portion of the Transfer Station is used by Bartlett residents and taxpayers only. The only way to ensure this is through the proper displaying of a Transfer Station sticker. Our attendants cannot be expected to know everyone.

No Bartlett resident or taxpayer will be denied the ability to dump once, however, you will be asked to make sure to get a sticker for future visits. You may obtain a sticker by getting a form at the Transfer Station or to the right of the front door at the Town Hall or they are on our website at www.townofbartlettnh.org. Attendants CANNOT issue stickers, they do not have them. Fill out the form and either mail it in or leave it in the mailbox outside the front door of Town Hall (not the one at the road) and your sticker will be mailed to you. Be sure you have provided your mailing address on the form.

** UPDATE – Friday, April 3, 2020 – PLEASE COMPLY  **

The Transfer Station will only be accepting regular household trash plus recyclables for the foreseeable future during the COVID 19 outbreak. This means that we ask that residents refrain from bringing in items other than normal weekly household trash.

We are filling up an extra compactor or more and having trouble moving the product in a timely manner. Your cooperation in bringing only household trash to the Transfer Station until we return to some sense of normalcy will be appreciated. Please keep items that can be kept and stored until later until such time as the outbreak is over. Recycling is still mandatory and accepted.

We apologize for some of the measures we have had to take, but we are trying to keep things open and operational as best we can and cooperation and patience from the residents is needed. Sometimes outside forces dictate what we can and cannot do and we are trying to work with those forces and still provide a place for Bartlett’s citizens to get rid of their trash. We are still NOT accepting items that require payment such as TV’s, mattresses, construction debris, etc. in order to avoid any person to person contact for the safety of all.

Your cooperation in these trying times will help us all get to the end of this crisis.

FROM THE NH DEPT. OF PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES

NH Health Officers,

It’s likely that you’re getting many questions about the novel coronavirus situation, or COVID-19. The DPHS phone lines have been very busy, and we’d like health officers to refer people to the correct resources. The information reported here may change, so please visit the trusted websites and read email updates each day.

In the best-case scenario, a citizen would get information from a trusted source and avoid calling the phone lines. If they need more information, they can call 211 with general questions, or call NH DPHS for suspect-case questions, or if they feel sick, call a healthcare provider. Please note that the hours of the phone lines for the NH DPHS have changed.

Direct people who want to learn more about COVID-19 to these two trusted websites:

Callers will reach a phone menu, and then select the ‘COVID’ option to reach a live operator.  Callers should expect to wait patiently for many minutes to reach an operator. 

 

Direct people to immediately report any suspect cases of COVID-19 (via exposure or travel) to the DPHS at these phone numbers:

During the day, call 603-271-4496 (office hours from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM) or 603-271-5300 (only after hours). Caller should expect to leave a message with an operator, or leave a voice mail, and wait patiently for a return call within a few hours.
