BARTON — Dave’s Rubbish is back on track to pick up trash in the town of Barton.
Over the past two weeks, owner Dave Giroux has turned in all of the paperwork the select board had been asking for since last fall.
The board voted to revoke his right to pick up trash in the Barton Solid Waste Management District at a hearing on April 3.
Mr. Giroux appealed the decision on April 17, the day the ban was to take effect. On Monday night, he and his wife, Marcie, came to the select board meeting to hear the decision.
“You guys got the numbers to us,” Chair Bob Croteau said. “You guys did good. You seem to have done everything we asked.”
Selectman Jim Greenwood attended the meeting by speakerphone.
“I talked to the SWIP administrator and they’ve done everything they were supposed to,” he said.
SWIP is the solid waste implementation plan.
The select board revoked Mr. Giroux’ right to operate after finding that he had failed to comply with town rules about required recordkeeping for trash services.
The decision was to take effect in two weeks to give Barton residents time to make new arrangements to get their trash picked up.
