C&D Waste No Longer Accepted

The Lebanon Solid Waste Division is evaluating options to extend the disposal capacity of the Lebanon Landfill located on 12A in West Lebanon. The current permitted capacity of the landfill is 10 years. Additional disposal capacity is being considered. It is agreed by many that the best way to extend the usable life of a landfill is to put less stuff in it.

Currently, approximately 20% of landfilled waste is construction and demolition waste (C&D).  

C&D is waste generated when remodeling or constructing a house, building, or structure. It is typically made up of items such as dimensional lumber, plywood, siding, roofing material, bricks, concrete, and flooring material.

With a focus to extend the disposal capacity of the Lebanon landfill, AS OF MAY 1, 2019, and until further notice, the Lebanon Solid Waste Facility will discontinue the acceptance of C&D waste. We understand that this may be an inconvenience for some. Please know that there are three options available for C&D disposal/recycling in the Upper Valley: 

A letter explaining the change in operation has been mailed to all Solid Waste commercial account holders. If you have any questions about this change, please contact Marc Morgan at 603-442-6210 or by email at marc.morgan@lebanonnh.gov.
