HISTORY AND PREVIOUS INITIATIVES

Williamstown's Environmental Leadership

Williamstown has been a leader in environmental protection since before it was a well-known or politically charged issue. The 1972 Town Report features an article by environmentalist Michael Shay, who describes the town’s recycling and composting successes, its implementation of a thorough road salt analysis and experiment, and its concentrated, on-going environmental awareness program. He writes, “1972 can easily be looked upon as the landmark year in the development of Williamstown’s environmental effort, when not only did the town become a national symbol for environmental accomplishment, but when the residents demonstrated their concern and pride for the environment in concrete and far-reaching ways.”
