The Transfer Station accepts municipal solid waste (MSW), limited amounts of construction and demolition material, propane tanks, appliances, electronic waste, metal, residential waste oil, and yard waste. There is also a recycling drop-off area. Materials must be segregated. ALL VEHICLES MUST STOP AT THE SCALE HOUSE PRIOR TO ENTERING THE FACILITY.  To see where to unload different types of waste, we have provided a layout map (PDF).

Laconia residents, who are disposing of only recyclables and yard waste, are admitted free. Otherwise, admission to the transfer station requires the purchase of an annual dump sticker or a day pass. Annual dump stickers may be obtained from the city clerk's office. Day passes may be purchased at the city clerk's office or at the transfer station. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. Be prepared to show proof of residency.

Disposal Fees

In addition to admission, there may be fees associated with what you are disposing of. We encourage residents to use credit cards and checks to cover disposal fees. Even if what you are getting rid of is free, all vehicles must stop on the scale prior to entering the facility. 

City Council has recently approved a rate increase. The new disposal fees, shown here, take effect on July 1, 2022.

Appliances that contain freon 

(Note that the City’s transfer station cannot accept refrigerators that use ammonia hydroxide gas instead of Freon as the refrigerant at this time. These refrigerators typically run on propane and are found in campers and other recreation vehicles.  The City is working on finding a contractor who is capable of recovering the ammonia hydroxide gas so that the refrigerator can be recycled.)
