Transfer Station Ordinance:  Disposal of Domestic Animal Waste

In the past few years the transfer station has experienced some unfortunate incidents associated with the disposal of domestic animal waste in the trash compactor.  In order to safeguard public health and well-being, the Select Board is proposing the following amendment to the transfer station ordinance (93-1).  The amendment clarifies that only domestic animal waste is allowed in the compactor and only as part of a bag of solid waste.  No singular containers of domestic animal waste, capped or uncapped, can be disposed of in the trash compactor.

Proposed amendment to Ordinance 93-1

Ordinance 93-1, Section II.  General Use, A. Acceptable Materials:

  1.   Solid Waste Placed in the Compactor
    1. All household non-recyclable, non-hazardous waste will be placed in the compactor to be taken to Waste Management Turnkey Landfill in Rochester, NH.
    2. The disposal of animal waste shall be limited to domesticated, household pets and must be properly contained within a bag with other household waste. Waste that is not properly contained will not be accepted.   Disposing of a singular container of animal waste, either capped or uncapped, will be considered a violation.

The entire ordinance can be found online or at Town Hall.
