Get a Free Home Heat Loss Evaluation

   Thursday, March 22nd, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Seal of the Town of ChelmsfordThe Town of Chelmsford's Office of Recycling / Waste is working with Sagewell, a local Massachusetts energy efficiency company, to bring home energy audits to Chelmsford. This energy scan is free to the public, and will help indicate to home and building owners if they are losing money by having heat escape their home/building.

Because of the predicted "cold snap" next week, Sagewell will be conducting their audits then. If you're interested, you must sign up before Saturday, March 24th.

For more information, visit http://www.sagewell.com/chelmsford or read the Office of Recycling / Waste's press release on this program [pdf]. Or, contact Jennifer Almeida, Recycling/Solid Waste Coordinator at jalmeida@townofchelmsford.us or 978-250-5203.

How the program will work:

  2. Appliance Recyclers, Inc. will take payment either by mailed check, credit card or online through their website at www.applrecyl.com.
  3. Appliance Recyclers, Inc. will tell the resident when they will be in town for collections. Collection will be no more than two weeks from the date the service is requested.
  4. The resident must put the item(s) at the curb on the designated morning by 7:00 a.m. Residents disposing of refrigerators and freezers MUST remove the doors before putting them at the curb!
  5. If collection is scheduled for the same day that the resident’s trash and/or recycling is scheduled for collection, residents must place items to be collected by Appliance Recyclers, Inc. separately from the trash/recycling so that there is no confusion as to what is what.
  6. If the items are not collected as scheduled, the resident should call Appliance Recyclers, Inc. as soon as possible to report the missed collection. Residents should call the Office of Recycling and Solid Waste at 978-250-5203 to report missed collections.
  7. Residents of multifamily properties that do not have curbside trash and recycling collection (i.e., those that have dumpsters for trash, totes for recycling) should find out from their property manager where these items should be placed for collection by Appliance Recyclers, Inc. No items should be placed in such a way that they will interfere with the ability of the trash and recycling haulers to empty the dumpsters and totes.

Questions? Contact the Office of Recycling and Solid Waste: 978-250-5203.
