Flood Debris Poll

Attention Marshfield Residents – the Selectboard and the Town Clerk's office would like to get a feel for the need in Marshfield for flood debris clean-up. The state is working with each town to coordinate contracts for regular Flood Debris pickup from town right-of-ways, cleanup of hazardous spill releases and picking up hazardous materials that should be kept separate from regular trash and flood debris. These are three separate clean-up offers from the state. Following last year's flood, the Clerk's Office had an overwhelming number of calls from residents seeking guidance on what to do with all flood damaged materials or help cleaning up spills. This year, Marshfield Town Clerk's Office has not had any reports or requests for help. To set up any of these contracts we would like to assess the needs of our residents.

If you are a Marshfield resident and experienced flood damages this year resulting an overwhelming amount of regular flood debris, you have a hazardous spill that needs cleaned OR if you have flood damaged hazardous materials that should be kept separate from regular trash and debris. please give the Marshfield Town Clerk's office a call this week to discuss your needs. We are open 8am-4pm. 802-426-3305. You can also email

If there is a need for this contract this year, we will post the designated pickup date and instructions for pickup on Front Porch Forum and here on the town website. Stay tuned.
