Gary was appointed to the Committee in 1997 and served the Committee and the Town in many capacities, finishing his final term as Chair of the Committee. Gary was instrumental with the licensing of the transfer station on Robinson Road. Over the years, he handled the annual grant applications and contracts for the Town's annual Household Hazardous Waste collection. Until his retirement, Gary was a long-time employee of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, which provided him with up-to-date information on state policies and environmental concerns. His substantial knowledge of environmental sciences has been a great resource to the committee, particularly with tough hazardous waste questions.
After more than twenty years of writing annual recycling reports, attending minutes and preparing minutes, coordinating hazardous waste collections, and helping out by recycling at the Scout yard sales, Gary is retiring from the Committee to travel and take on new projects and adventures. The rest of the Committee will miss him, but we wish him well!
