New Hampshire’s relatively low population means it produces one of the lowest tonnages of solid waste every year, just over 1 million tonnes. The number is so low, that nearly 49% of all solid waste disposed of in the state comes from outside the state. And while recycling efforts are increasing, there is still great need for landfills and dumps. That means no matter where you are in New Hampshire, there’s likely a dump nearby.
Despite some protests to open new ones, you’ll find them all across the state in areas such as Concord, Bethlehem, Salem, Hollis, Nashua, Berlon, Bedford, and many more.
If you’re thinking about dumping toxic or hazardous waste, make sure it goes to a location that can process it safely. Otherwise, it could end up harming the local environment. Most general waste from your house or construction waste will be accepted at the majority of locations.
