Transfer Station Manager Gerry Cornett said the Transfer Station receives 3-4 mattresses and 1-2 couches/la-z-boys per week this time of year and in the summer the Transfer Station can't keep up with the amount of mattresses it receives because the company that takes the waste allows only a certain amount of mattresses per week and when there are too many they have to wait to take them away another week.
Gerry is also in favor of fees for microwaves and TVs because they cannot be thrown in the general trash.
The volume coming in is becoming a problem and he wants the fee issue to be resolved now before the volume is a problem.
Fees and trucking costs to the Transfer Station are also increasing.
Gerry said the towns he surveyed belong to the original disposal consortium that is less structured than the agreement New Boston has but times are changing and their contracts are due to be renewed.
He has called New Boston's disposal company to discuss it who said they cannot be more lenient.
Gerry will also survey surrounding towns for their fees.

Town of New Boston, NH - Board of Selectmen's Minutes 01/28/2008
It was discussed at the last Department Dead meeting where the Department Heads expressed their confusion over the procedure as they were told in March the Selectmen decided they could use Transfer Station Manager Gerry Cornett for building maintenance if they wished, and then in October they were told the Selectmen decided they had to use him.
Gerry said he has been working on a few small building maintenance jobs approximately 2-3 hours per week if time at the Transfer Station allows.
Sometimes it is during his scheduled time at the Transfer Station and sometimes it is not and he has also been working on creating a maintenance program for the town at home.
Transfer Station Manager Gerry Cornett was present to meet with the Selectmen to discuss the status of projects at the Transfer Station.
, Gerry feels it is not a good time to institute fees at this time because of the direction the economy is turning.
However, he does suggest implementing a fee for e-waste of $3 for each laptop, CPU, printer and scanner and $5 for each microwave.
The town already charges $10 for each TV and $5 for each monitor.
The town is charged by the trailer load to take it out of town.
The Selectmen want to make sure any fees are reasonable, equal to what it costs the town to get rid of the item and less than what surrounding towns are charging.
Gerry suggested not implementing a fee for furniture except for bulky weight of 3-5 pieces of furniture or more.
The new fees will be announced for e-waste and bulk furniture and will be effective August 1.
, The trash hauler has been charging $150 for a "fuel surcharge" each time he comes to the Transfer Station to haul items out.
This is the correct fee due to high fuel prices according to the contract he has with the town.
However it seems extreme and Gerry is trying to work with the trucker and Weare who he also hauls for to arrange a more reasonable fee.Gerry offered to get permission for him to fill up at the town pump on occasion with certain conditions but the trucker did not seem interested in this option.
He is meeting with his lawyer Tuesday and is expected to offer a more reasonable set fee per trip on Wednesday or Thursday.
Gerry will inform the Selectmen of his answer when it is received.
The Weare Transfer Station Manager is interested in a truck co-op with New Boston.
, Transfer Station Status: Things are going well.
, Gerry is requesting the Selectmen allow the Transfer Station employees to have the day after July 4th off this year as it is a Saturday and there was not much activity at the Transfer Station that weekend last year.
Selectmen accepted the resignation of Gerry Cornett from the maintenance oversight position.
Burton will call Louise Robie from the church and ask if the new tanks are double wall tanks and will check with the rules and regulations Gerry is using for oil containment at the Transfer Station.

Members of the Planning Board or Transfer Station Manager Gerry Cornett would also be resourceful for the committee as they will need town employee members as well to gather some of the information needed.
