We are excited to announce that our Solid Waste Permit pilot program has successfully ended and, beginning today, Lebanon and West Lebanon residents can begin applying for a Solid Waste permit either online or at the Lebanon City Clerk’s Office. If you are a Lebanon resident, you can get started now by visiting LebanonNH.gov/SolidWastePermit.
Why are permits being required?
In April 2021, the City Council amended Chapter 97: Landfill Regulations of the City Code to implement a new permitting system for access and use of the Lebanon Solid Waste Facility. The permitting system will allow the Solid Waste Division to monitor and ensure that waste is only coming from authorized communities.
When will permits be required?
Beginning September 1, 2021, anyone accessing the Solid Waste Facility will be required to have a valid permit. Those entering the facility without a permit will not be allowed to dispose of waste.
How do I get a permit?
If you are a Lebanon resident, you can obtain a permit by either completing our online application or by visiting the Lebanon City Clerk’s Office at City Hall. Proof of residency will be required when applying online and in person. Visit LebanonNH.gov/SolidWastePermit to apply and to learn more about this new requirement. Please also note that a $10 fee will be charged when applying in person at the City Clerk’s Office. Online applications are free.
What if I am not a Lebanon resident?
Residents of our participating communities (those that have Solid Waste Disposal Agreements with the City) will be able to obtain permits later this summer. Stay tuned for an announcement of the rollout date in mid to late July.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Please contact Solid Waste Manager, Marc Morgan if you have questions about the new Solid Waste Permit process. The Solid Waste Division will also have staff available throughout the summer at the Lebanon Farmers' Market to answer your questions.
