1. Recycle is mandatory.

5. Residential use only-no commercial haulers.
Reminder-the Board reserves the right to amend and/or change the ordinance at anytime.

NO HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE WILL BE ACCEPTED
Hazardous waste will not be accepted at the Transfer Station.  Residents may take advantage of the Keen Transfer Station
Household Hazardous Waste Collection days to dispose of these products. The collection site is located adjacent to the
Keene Recycling Center on Route 12 North.  No cost is associated with this program for individuals because it is funded
through grants and a line item in the budget.  Almost every home has products that should be disposed of in an
environmentally, safe manner. Items include: anything containing mercury, such as batteries, thermometers,
thermostats, florescent lamps, as well as antifreeze, turpentine, lead based paint, WD40, brake fluid, pesticides,
old cleaning supplies, charcoal starter, etc. Please take advantage of this service.
