Household Hazardous Waste Collection

  • Canaan Transfer Station Canaan, NH USA (map)

Household hazardous waste must be brought to the transfer station on the days advertised. See attached PDF to view a chart of items that are considered Household Hazardous Waste. All items marked in red under the HHW Column are accepted. There are no fees. 

No Commercial Waste – that means no hazardous waste that came from a business. This is federal law and violations would stop the program.

Residents will be eligible to bring in no more than 5 gallons (or 40 pounds) per collection day. If you have specific circumstances that require dropping off more than five gallons, please call Mike Samson at 523-4501 ext. 5.

Keep the hazardous waste in the ORIGINAL CONTAINER if at all possible.

You will need to sign in that day. If you are a voter or have a residence in Canaan or Orange as shown on the tax cards, you will be eligible. If you are a renter, please bring some proof that you are renting and/or living in Canaan or Orange.

All hazardous waste will be properly disposed of or recycled.
