It may not be the only one of its kind in the country, but Westport’s dump could be the most interesting since Arlo Guthrie and Alice visited theirs that famous Thanksgiving years ago.
- We don’t call it a dump. It’s a “transfer station.”
- Sure, there are trucks and Suburbans. But there are also plenty of Range Rovers, BMWs and Mercedeses, plus the occasional Tesla, Maserati, Rolls and Bentley. All are driven by “normal” Westporters, trash in tow.
- It may be the only
dumptransfer station that’s a regular stop for politicians stumping for votes, and non-profits to hand out flyers.
Now, add one more “only in Westport.” Is there another one anywhere with a hand sanitizing pump — and marketing materials?
