Silver bullets back

The town’s “silver bullet” recycling receptacles have been moved to their original location at the Public Works facility, 185 Windham Center Road. The silver bullets had been moved to the Family Resource Center when the Public Works facility was under construction. Now that the project has been completed, they have been returned.

Meet the author
