New Automated Solid Waste Collection Program
Begins - July 2009

The Town of Londonderry is introducing a new automated solid waste collection program. Each household will be provided with one 65-gallon container (with wheels) that will be picked up by a truck with an automatic arm. The Town of Londonderry as a whole has embraced recycling since 1988 and this change represents one of the areas in the municipal budget where residents can proactively control town expenditures without a reduction in service. We strongly believe that this 65-gallon container will be sufficient for homeowners if they recycle their recyclable materials (glass, plastic, cans, paper, and cardboard) according to town guidelines.

The following information summarizes the changes:

Solid Waste

- One 65-gallon container, coded with a serial number assigned to each household, will be delivered during the first two weeks of July. Residents can start using these containers as soon as they receive them. Allied Waste Services will send around 2 types of trucks for trash pickup until all containers have been delivered.

- Containers must be placed at least 3' away from any other object (mailbox, light post, parked car etc.) and no more than 8' from the edge of the pavement.

- Brochures with additional information on collection procedures will be provided with each container.

- For an occasional special event, if additional volume is needed, an extra bag will be available for purchase at the Town Hall.


- The method of disposing recyclables has not changed. Recycle bins are available at the Public Works Department.

- The recycling program will be improved to allow corrugated cardboard to be 3' X 3' X 3' (instead of 2' X 2' X 2') and can be placed together with mixed paper.

- Old trash barrels can be used as recycling containers if they are properly labeled as such. Labels will be provided for residents at the Town Hall.

For detailed information regarding solid waste disposal and recycling please check the additional information on this website’s Environmental Services Division or call Public Works Department at 603-432-1100 X193.
