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.

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

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

Thanks for your cooperation!

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.
