Transfer Station Details

Wilmot’s Transfer Station is located on Route 11 and is operated by two Transfer Station employees per shift, under the direction of the Road Agent.  The Wilmot Transfer Station is available to Wilmot residents only.  Every resident’s vehicle should have a current Transfer Station sticker clearly visible to the attendants (driver’s side rear, if possible).  Stickers are available from the Town Clerk’s Office or the Selectmen’s Office.

To reduce disposal costs, the Selectmen encourage everyone to reduce the amount of waste they produce by composting your food scraps and recycling as much as possible. The Town pays per pound to dispose of waste and this is paid for by tax dollars.  Lower your taxes by practicing the three R’s:

  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle

The committee meets on the third Thursday of the month at 5 p.m. in the Wilmot Town Offices, 9 Kearsarge Valley Road.

The Recycling Committee is a successor to the former Waste Reduction Committee. It was created because the logistics of recycling have become more complicated, and the Town of Wilmot must adopt new procedures in order that recycling continue to be a viable way of managing solid waste disposal. Going forward, more materials as commodities to be sold rather than waste to be got rid of. For example, more separation of plastics and metals is likely. 

The committee meets regularly at the town offices. Contact select board member Glynis Hart if you would like to participate.
