SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): As of July 1, the town of Dalton has officially joined the Northern Berkshire Solid Waste Management District (NBSWMD) and has become the group’s 14th member “I am very excited to have a new member town,” NBSWMD Program Manager Linda Cernik said. “…Sharing Services has been our best practice for many years since the District was established in 1988. Since its inception we have grown in size, generated more grant revenue for small rural towns, and expanded services with very little increase in the towns’ yearly assessments.”
Dalton first started the process of joining the district in 2019. Cernik said conversations petered out and once the pandemic started, the process completely halted. Conversations reignited when Cernik was approached by the town’s DPW in 2023 “From day one the Town of Dalton wanted to join, since meetings started in 2023,” she said. “I have had several meetings over the past six months or so, a few site inspections of the transfer station… All good has come from our meetings.”
She said she has worked closely with DPW Director Bud Hall, DPW assistant Jess Suleski, and Town Manager Thomas Hutchinson, and after a town meeting vote in June, Dalton was approved to join.
