Round Hill Association Forum

Congressman Jim Himes

All Association members, neighbors and friends are invited to attend our next meeting on Tuesday, September 27th when second-term United States Congressman Jim Himes will address our neighborhood community and take questions from the audience.  There is no shortage of topics to be covered, and this provides us all with an opportunity to hear from our Congressman about what is currently happening in Washington.

We will also hear from Douglas Serafin, Director of the Department of Health laboratory, on water supply and well safety.   Steve Silver, CL & P Account Executive for Greenwich, will give us an update on CL & P’s efforts to improve service to the Greenwich community.

The meeting will be held at the Round Hill Community House, 397 Round Hill Road.

Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm.

The program will begin at 7:00 pm.

 

Single Stream Recycling Begins August 1st in Greenwich

 

Recycling is about to get easier in Greenwich.

Beginning August 1st, residents will combine all recyclables in one big bin with a lid for collection:

  • Newspaper & Brown Bags
  • Cardboard & Paper Board
  • Mixed Paper & Junk Mail
  • Aluminum & Tin Cans
  • Glass & Plastic Bottles
  • Plastic Containers #1 through #7
  • Waxed Milk and Juice Cartons

No more sorting and separating.  Single Stream Recycling permits combining an expanded list of household recyclables in one bin. This single weekly collection program will replace blue bin and mixed paper pick-up.  Each week your trash hauler will collect recycling one day and trash on another.  He will coordinate with you.

Please see expanded list of recyclables and further details on the Town website:

Grant-funded Well Water Testing

Program Offers Reduced Fee

well water testingWell water is a vital resource that serves a significant percentage of properties in Greenwich; therefore, protecting this resource is essential for safe water consumption.

In order to encourage residents to perform annual well water testing, the Greenwich Department of Health is offering water analysis at a reduced fee through August 31, 2011.  (The last day of the testing program was July 31st but, at the request of the RHA, the offer has been extended to August 31st).  This offer is being supported through a state-funded grant. For $30–half the usual price–residents may pick up a well water testing kit at the Department’s laboratory, located on the ground floor of the Town Hall. Water samples will be analyzed for coliform bacteria, pH, color, turbidity and odor. Results of these tests will be mailed to you in about one week.

Lab hours are Monday – Friday 8 AM to 3:00 PM

For more information about the special well water testing program, please call the Department of Health laboratory at 203-622-7843.
