Beginning Wednesday, September 1, 2021, all Lebanon residents and residents in authorized participating communities will be required to obtain a permit. Residents of those communities that choose not to permit direct use of the Solid Waste Facility will be required to dispose of their trash and recycling at their local transfer stations. Residential permits can be obtained by applying for free using our online application OR, when available, by applying in person at your local clerk's office. Please note that Solid Waste Permits do not replace punch cards.
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?
Residents and property owners of authorized participating communities can begin applying for their permits as soon as their community has provided the Lebanon Solid Waste Facility with a signed agreement. Communities will be added as these agreements are received. Please continue to check our Solid Waste Permit page at LebanonNH.gov/SolidWastePermit to see a list of approved communities and to learn how to apply. Proof of residency will be required when applying online and in person. Please also note that a $10 fee will be charged when applying in person. 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. Please check our Solid Waste Permits page for details to see when you can begin applying.
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.
