Transfer Station Visits

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description In the spirit of the Common Measures Project, NH is visiting 20 percent of the NH transfer stations/recycling centers to determine compliance with RSA 149-M:58, which bans the disposal of mercury-added products at any solid waste landfill, transfer station, or incinerator. While the facilities are not required to recycle mercury-added products, they must post a sign warning that it is illegal to dispose of mercury-added products in solid waste and provide written notification to residents. In addition, they must provide residents with information about available collection and recycling programs for mercury-added products. The facilities must implement an inspection procedure to detect the presence of mercury-added products in solid waste. A summary of the findings will be released later in 2008.
