Town of Portsmouth Announces a Change in the Construction/Demolition Policy at the Transfer Station
Beginning Thursday, August 2, 2012, the Town of Portsmouth will begin a new construction and demolition (C & D) policy at the Transfer Station. Small residential loads, up to one 32 gallon barrel or one car trunk load of C & D, may be disposed of in the C & D bin at the Transfer Station at no charge, once per day. Pickup truck loads may be disposed of in the C & D bin for a $75 fee, once per day. Trailers will not be allowed. This service is available only to residents with a valid Transfer Station sticker and is for residential C & D only.
In order to dispose of a pickup truck load, residents will be required to purchase a pass at the Tax Collector’s office in Town Hall located at 2200 East Main Road between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You must provide your pass to the security guard when you arrive at the Transfer Station to dispose of your C & D.
C & D loads cannot contain tires, propane tanks, asbestos or other hazardous materials.
C & D is not allowed in the compactor pits.
Non C & D material must be separated from the C & D and placed in the appropriate bin or pit.
The fee for mattresses and box springs will remain at $15 for disposal of each piece, and you must first pay the attendant to dispose of them. Mattresses and box springs will now be disposed of in a separate bin.
