Hampstead Pay As You Throw Trash Collection (March 2010)
This measure was defeated
This measure sought to implement a trash collecting program that would make it so that each resident payed for each bag of trash they threw away but recycled goods would be free. This measure was brought about as a way to increase recycling in the town, but opponents did not like that larger households would be penalized due to producing more trash. Town officials are hoping now to find other ways to educate residents and increase the amount of good recycled.
