Have you just moved into Canterbury? Here are some things you should do once you are settled:
Get to the Town Office: You can visit the Town Clerk's office to register to vote, change motor vehicle registration information and license your dog. Their hours are Monday from 9 AM to 3 PM. Tuesday from 12 AM to 7 PM. Thursday from 3 PM to 7 PM. The Town Clerk's Office is located at the Sam Lake House on Hackleboro Road, just off the Town center. Their phone number is 783-0153. Click here to email the Town Clerk, Ben Bynum.
Our residents have voted to make Recycling MANDATORY in Canterbury. Paper products, some plastics, aluminum and glass are recycled for free, while a small fee is charged for other products such as electronics and construction waste. For a complete fee schedule check the transfer station and recycling section of the website. Effective October 4, 2006 the Town has implemented a pay as you throw program. Bags are on sale at the Transfer Station, Town Office and Shaws on Ft. Eddy Rd. You can purchase a ten pack of 30 gallon size bags for $20.00/pack or get a ten pack of the 15 gallon size bags for $10.00/pack. Proceeds from the sale of these bags will go to offset the cost of operating the Town transfer station.
Get Involved: Volunteers are always needed for various projects around Town. Boards and Committees almost always need new members. If you see something of interest to you, please contact a member of the Board or Committee or the Town office at 783-9955 and we can get you in touch with a contact person.
We will be adding more information to this page. If you have any ideas on information you would like to see please "send your comments" to us.
