Special Town Meeting Feb 7

There will be a special town meeting on Tuesday, Feb 7 2017 at 7pm at Buckland Town Hall. 

Here is the warrant for the special town meeting.

Postal Zip Codes

Many residents of Buckland use the Shelburne Falls zip code 01370, however there are residents who have been assigned the Charlemont, Ashfield, or Buckland Zip Code.  This has caused problems for some residents in terms of receiving their mail.  The Town and other residents have also experienced difficulties as a result of the Shelburne Falls zip code designation.  Some of these difficulties are described in the attached letter. It has been suggested that the Town contact the Postal Service directly to discuss these matters.  As a result, the Selectmen have drafted a letter and are seeking resident review and comment.

Click to view a a DRAFT of that letter in order to begin the conversation.  Here is a map of Buckland zipcodes.

Please send any comments for the Board's consideration to the Town Administrator at twnadmin@town.buckland.ma.us

The Board of Selectmen will be reviewing any comments at their meeting on January 24th.Read more...

Bulky Items - Companies Offering Pickup & Disposal
If you have bulky items (mattresses, upholstered furniture, wood furniture, toilets, sinks, and carpet) that you are unable to transport to the Greenfield Transfer Station, or to the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District's May and October "Clean Sweep" events, there are local companies that you can hire to pick up and properly dispose of the items.

You will be contracting directly with the private hauler and will be responsible for paying any pickup and disposal fees that are charged.  This is NOT a service provided by the Town of Buckland. You are making a private arrangement with a private company to perform a service, and the Town does not control the fees that are charged.

This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all companies that may provide this service, and does not constitute any endorsement or recommendation by the Town of Buckland.  Companies are listed alphabetically.
