How to Reach Us

(603) 673-5469

260 Route 101
Amherst, NH 03031

The Transfer Station is located on Route 101 heading east between Walnut Hill and Horace Greeley Roads. Most non-hazardous wastes can be left there. Fees are charges for a few items. It is to everyone’s advantage to recycle as much as possible because items put in the trash compactors cost the town more than anything else for disposal. Use the recycling flyer to learn where and how to recycle whatever you have. The Amherst Transfer Station is overseen by the Amherst Solid Waste Task Force. The day-to-day operations are run by the Amherst DPW. Amherst participates in the Nashua Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.

Hazardous wastes are not accepted at the Amherst Transfer Station.

Fees are charged for some items; refrigerators and air conditioners charged at $10.00 each, passenger tires charged at $2.50 each, truck tires charged at $10.00 each, electronics (T.V. and PC Monitors) charged at $5.00 each, propane gas cylinders charged at $3.00 each, brush and logs larger that 6″ in diameter and construction debris charged at .10 a pound.

Check at the scale house for additional information on prices or handling of specific materials. Information available at the scale house is definitive and final.
