Hazardous Waste:

Nottingham belongs to a hazardous waste Co-Op that provides disposal once a year, generally in the fall. Watch for notice. Sign up in the town offices (Selectmen's Office) is required and the service is free. Save these items for this disposal: oil-based paint, pesticides, creosote, driveway sealant, thermostats, waste fuels, cleaning products, etc. For hazardous waste disposal at other times, contact Turnkey in Rochester.

Keep in mind that we as a town pay by the ton to landfill our trash. By recycling as much as possible, we can reduce the amount of money we spend on waste disposal! For example, the town is currently able to sell some materials, such as corrugated cardboard. It makes little sense to pay to dispose of those materials when they can instead be a source of income.

The Nottingham Recycling Center is the oldest consecutively operating center in the nation. We began recycling in 1973 as an effort to reduce the cost of solid waste disposal to town residents, and the program has done just that. In order to continue our successful program, we rely on your compliance with the above guidelines. Don, Larry, and Joe from the Recycling Center thank you for your cooperation! Remember, everything has a place. If you have any questions about what to do with an item, please ask one of them. They are happy to provide assistance.
