Household Hazardous Waste User Fee

User Fees = $15 per vehicle, for up to 10 gallons or 20 pounds of hazardous waste.

If you bring more than 10 gallons or 20 pounds you will be asked to make an additional donation.

We accept cash or check.

Please make your hazardous waste check payable to "NRSWMD."

Carpooling is encouraged. If you and your neighbors collectively have less than 10 gallons or 20 pounds of materials and you carpool in one vehicle, you’ll only be charged $15.00 total.

*Note: User fees apply to residential customers only.  Businesses participating in the Small Quantity Generator program will be charged directly by our hazardous waste vendor based on materials and volumes. 


Why Pay a Fee?

The Nashua Region Solid Waste Management District spends roughly $60 per household on disposal costs alone for each HHW event.  Grant funding to subsidize the program is never guaranteed, so in order to ensure we can continue to offer a full collection schedule we ask participants to help offset the program costs with a $15 user fee.  We sincerely appreciate your support and participation, without which this program could not continue.
