|Carry-In, Carry-Out Trash Policy
Effective April 1, 2012 the Eliot Community Service Department will be adopting a “Carry-In, Carry-Out” policy for waste management at the fields and parks in Eliot. Trash & recycling barrels will no longer be provided at the Town of Eliot’s Facilities; therefore visitors, spectators, and all who use the Community Service Department’s Recreational Facilities will be asked to carry-out their waste, and dispose of it in a proper manner, or to recycle it when applicable.
There are numerous benefits to this new program, some of which are listed below:
Carry-In, Carry-Out policy effective at these facilities beginning April 1, 2012:
- Removal of garbage and recycling containers eliminates the smells and the mess they create, thereby creating a more pleasant atmosphere for all to enjoy.
- Less wildlife rummaging through trash barrels and littering the parks/fields.
- Terminates the swarms of bees around barrels, creating a safer environment for everyone.
- Less time spent on trash pick-up that will be re-directed for field improvements.

No Tobacco Policy
In order to promote the health and safety of all Eliot residents, the board of selectmen have established all public park property in Eliot as tobacco free. Through appointing this policy, town of Eliot prohibits the use of tobacco products, including, but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco on, in or at any athletic/recreation facility operated by the Community Service Department. Your cooperation to effectively maintain this policy is appreciated.
The boat launching area (only) as part of the Piscataqua River boat launching facility is exempt from this policy.
