HISTORY

The Recycling Center was created on April 22, 1990, Earth Day, when the town received a grant for one-half the cost of the recycling building from “New Hampshire the Beautiful”.  A large group of volunteers under the watchful eye of contractor Terry Robie raised the building in almost one day.  The Selectmen joined in and everyone enjoyed grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.  The Center was formally opened on June 2, 1990.

In the year 1994, we went to a compactor vs. open container thus saving more money.

The town subsequently voted in a PAYT (Pay-As-You-Throw) program, so almost all services are now covered by user fees.  If you want to throw everything away, you can, but you must pay for it, whereas if you recycle half that, your costs are cut in half.

 Please be advised that effective September 1, 2018

all loads are subject to additional charges if contaminated. It is worth noting that almost all receiving facilities in the northeast have had to take steps like these to address the “China Sword” specifications. NRRA has worked with all members to make sure that all recyclables sent to markets meet the specifications required by mills and MRFs alike. Experience shows that consistent and clear education will insure compliance. If you need any additional information about China’s Recyclable Ban (China Sword), please visit our China Sword Information and Resource page or if you need further assistance, just call NRRA-Your Best Defense Against the China Sword

In March of 2016, Piermont began participating in the Zero-Sort Program.  For details on how to recycle under this program and which items are acceptable, please see:

ZERO-SORT SPECIFICATIONS & GUIDELINES

Price List – April 29, 2017

***Effective May 1st- There will be a .50 increase in the cost of Town Trash Bags.

This increase will apply to both large and small sizes.***

PLEASE NOTE:

If you bring your recycling in bags or boxes, please dump it out into the dumpsters as the automatic system at the plant cannot sort it if it’s bagged or boxed.

Used paper plates are not recyclable!

Town Trash Bags are now available for purchase in

Town Clerk’s Office

In conjunction with the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC), we hold a one-day event at the Recycling Center so you can get rid of hazardous materials (i.e. old gas, chemicals, oil base paint, etc.).  Click on the link below for more information and the current schedule.

 

Household Hazardous Waste Collection for 2018

October 13th is Haz-mat day in Piermont at the Transfer Center, between the hours of 9am-11am. This will be last one for the year. The Transfer Center will open 1 hour early on that day only so you can bring your haz-mat and trash at the same time.  As we only have a collection every other year,  next year the closest location will be in Lebanon, NH. Now is the time to get your stuff together so you can get rid of it safely!
