****Transfer Station Notice ****

Recycling Notice:  The Town is pleased to announce that recycling will resume on Wednesday June 3, 2020.

The transfer station will be open on Wednesday June 3rd and June 10th from 7:30am to 11:30am for recycling only.  The intent is to allow residents that have saved up recycling to have the opportunity to take care of them without causing extra delays on the regular days the transfer station is open. If you have saved up recycling materials, please consider using the extra Wednesday hours.

Starting Thursday June 4th the transfer station will resume taking trash and recyclables during regular hours.  All other materials will continue as usual:  Brush, Leaves, Grass Clippings, Construction and Demolition, batteries, electronics, scrap metals, etc.    

There will be changes to the transfer station layout.  The sorting walkway will be widened by moving the jersey barriers back away several feet.  There will be social distance markings on the floor of the deck.  The parking will be laid out for one vehicle per concrete Jersey barrier.

The biggest change to be aware of is about plastic recycling.  The Souhegan Regional Landfill District (SRLD) has become aware that our mixed plastics (#1 – 7’s) are being sorted at the recycling centers with much of the plastic deemed unusable, being reloaded and taken to landfills.  The SRLD believes that to be transparent, it needs to take affirmative action.  Therefore; the only plastics that we will accept for recycling will be #1 PET clear plastic bottles and to continue with the #2 translucent food containers (aka ‘milk jugs.’)  We know they are being recycled.  The remainder of plastics will go to trash; where we know it will be turned into energy.

We are reopening the recycling, but we need you to stay mindful of social distancing, be patient and stay healthy.
