Traveling across the state awarding grants has given NHtB Board members a unique opportunity to see New Hampshire municipal transfer stations in action. It has become quite clear that New Hampshire transfer station operators are some of the most dedicated and creative individuals in the recycling industry. NH transfer station operators serve their residents by designing and operating their facilities in a way that works best for their individual community. No two towns are alike. In many ways, no two transfer stations are alike. As towns differ, so does the way each town handles their solid waste and their recyclables.
To be successful, transfer stations must recognize that their resident’s participation in the recycling process is critical. In much the same way that operators run their facilities for maximum efficiency, many have sought out creative means to get their residents to recycle more.
