HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

  • Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) consists of unwanted homeowner products that have the same qualities as a hazardous waste such as paint (solvent based), cleaners, pesticides, lubricants, drain cleaners and fertilizers. 
  • HHW should NOT go in your household trash.  It must be handled separately. 
  • The Lakes Region Planning Commission holds two events in the summer, typically the last Saturday in July (in Gilford) and first Saturday in August (in Laconia) where you can dispose of your HHW for free.
  • The Lakes Region Household Hazardous Product Facility accepts HHW for a fee and is open 8:30-12:00 from May – October.  They are located at 404 Beach Pond Road in Wolfboro, NH and their phone number is 603-569-5826.   CLICK HERE for a flyer from their facility.
  • The Town of Goffstown, NH runs a year round HHW program at their Transfer Station where you can dispose of your HHW for a fee.  Call (603) 497-4824, Tues – Sat 7:30-3:00, to make an appointment.
  • For any other question on how to handle your HHW, please contact Bruce Hewitt at 293-0220 or recycle@gilfordnh.org.
