The work will be confined to the Town property, however, during the early stages of the construction there may be an increase in the odor associated with the landfill as crews work to grade the landfill and install the permanent cover system, these odor should lessen as construction progresses through the spring. The closure will require bringing in a large quantity of supplies and materials to the landfill and residents may observe an increase in truck traffic on Graham Road, Lisbon Road, and River Road. Due to recent inclement weather the contractor will be working this weekend to place the liner over the landfill. Working hours are anticipated to be 7:00AM to 3:00 PM, the processing facility will remain open during its regular hours during this work.
