Transfer Station rule change: GLASS MUST BE SEPARATED so it can be recycled for more revenue. It cannot be mixed with recycling or the town is fined by Waste Management for contamination – GLASS GOES IN GLASS BIN!

USED OIL cannot be accepted at the Transfer Station; the containment does not meet requirements. Collection of used motor oil takes place annually on Household Hazardous Waste Day at the Ossipee Town Garage, 55 Main St., Aug. 3rd, 2019 8:30-noon (for which the town pays an annual fee of $1629). See brochure link below for more information on HHW. Please make use of this service. Thank you.
