Transfer Station Stickers

Transfer station stickers are available for purchase at the Town Hall during regular business hours. The cost is 10.00 for the first sticker and $5.00 for each additional sticker. Residents must present vehicle registration(s) in order for the Town Clerk to properly assign the sticker(s). 

If you move out of Rollinsford or sell your vehicle, your transfer station sticker should be surrendered to the Town Clerk or destroyed and the Town Clerk notified in order to prevent non-residents from using the transfer station.

Recycling at the Transfer Station

In December of 2014, Rollinsford adopted a Single-Stream Recycling system in order to save the town thousands of dollars in operating costs. The two open containers located at the top of the hill for recycling are now used for any combination of glass, plastic, white paper, tin cans, and aluminum cans. Corrugated cardboard is still recycled inside the building at the bottom of the hill.

The Transfer Station accepts plastics #1- 7 for recycling. Please be sure they are clean and the lids are removed!

Anyone wishing to dispose of waste oil should take it to Roger’s Auto on Foundry Street. 

Household Hazardous Waste

Most household chemicals are hazardous and improper disposal is a growing problem. It’s extremely important that we all know how to identify which products are hazardous and dispose of them properly.

Each year, we participate in a regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day where residents can bring unwanted household chemicals for safe disposal. Find a list of household chemicals that require proper disposal and get details on this year’s Collection on our Household Hazardous Waste page.

Latex Paint

Please do not bring latex paint to hazardous waste collections! Thousands of tax dollars are spent each year disposing of latex paint when, in fact, it is not hazardous! Here are some ways to deal with leftover and unused latex paint:

Small amounts of paint can be mixed with other colors or bulked together and used as a primer coat or on jobs where the final finish is not critical.

Donate unopened cans of paint! Many schools, religious groups, community groups, and theater groups will accept unopened cans of paint, especially white! Even a neighbor may need some extra paint. You can also check your paint store’s policy on returning unopened cans of paint.

We cannot accept liquid or soft paint at the transfer station, so all residual/leftover paint must be hardened or dried before you throw it away. Once the paint is fully dry, you can throw the lids and cans away in a plastic trash bag along with your regular household trash. (Be sure to throw away the cans with the lids OFF!) Depending on the amount of paint you have left over, there are different ways: to dry out your paint:

• Cans 1/4 or less full
Simply remove the lid and place can in a safe, well-ventilated area.
Cans 1/4 or less will dry in a few days.

• Cans more than 1/4 full
Waste Paint Hardener™ is available at paint stores and most area hardware stores. Mulch, kitty litter, or shredded paper may also be used as a bulking/drying agent. (Waste Paint Hardener is also handy for handling spills. One bag can thicken and contain a spilled gallon.) To use commercial paint hardener:

1, Protect your work surface by lining it with old newspaper.
2, Add Waste Waste Paint Hardener to can. One packet treats up to one gallon of unwanted latex or water-based paint.
3. Stir and mix thoroughly. For best results, add up to one cup of water to help activate the Hardener.
4. Set aside for 30 minutes. At the end of that time, paint will have a tacky, oatmeal-like consistency, but will not spill out.
5. Your paint is now ready for disposal!

Of course, the best thing you can do for the landfill (and your pocketbook) is avoid creating waste at the start! Buy only what you need. One gallon of paint will cover between 250 and 350 square feet, depending on the porosity of the surface to be covered. A gallon of paint will cover closer to 250 square feet of surfaces that are more porous.
