What is household hazardous waste?
Hazardous Waste in the Home!
Many common products used in the home, garden, lawn, and garage are considered hazardous. If a product is flammable, reactive, or explosive when mixed with other substances, or is corrosive or toxic, then it is considered hazardous. Read the label! Products containing hazardous material should say "poison", "toxic", or "danger".
 
Common Household Hazardous Waste
How we dispose of common household products depends on the product's contents and its toxicity to people, animals, and the environment. Some material, if entirely used, can be placed in the landfill, other items can be recycled, but the majority should be taken to a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Site.
 
Click here for the HHW 2014 Brochure with further information on locations, times, and requirements for disposal.
Click here for the HHW 2014 Flyer
 
This Household Hazardous Waste flipbook is intended to serve as a guide for alternatives to household hazardous waste products for the garage, yard & garden, and house.

Nature-Fitness Trail Nearing Completion
All 20 Fitness Stations have been installed
 
Bob Barry organized the installation of the 20 fitness stations along the trail with the help of many different volunteers. Some finish work needs to be done which includes raking/cliping roots and debris in the trail, the area surrounding each of the stations, and the Pemigewasset River overlook. These areas will eventually be rimmed with bark mulch. Signage will be installed at each station recognizing the donors. Senior Boy Scout Josh Simpson, of Meredith, has delivered two kiosks he made for his Eagle project which will soon be installed.
 
The trail will be leveled and ledge pack will be installed across the main trail.  We are still looking for volunteers so if you have some time to donate please contact Bob Barry at 744-7921 - or - call the Town Office at 744-3559.
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated !

May Update: Police Department Warns of Phone Scams
A town resident has made the New Hampton Police aware of a phone scam that is occurring in the area. The call is an automated call from Rite Aid and after the computer says your name, you are asked to give them your date of birth. Do not give your date of birth and hang up. The resident called the local Rite Aid and they did confirm that this is a scam. First thing to notice is the caller ID. If the real Rite Aid calls you, they will use their local number which you should recognize (Bristol would start with 744 or Plymouth should start with 536). The scammers are using either an 866 or 800 number. In this case the number called from was 866-219-2430. Secondly, the only time you should give your date of birth is when you call them, never when they call you. If you are unsure if the call is real or fake, simply hang up and call your Rite Aid to inquire.
 
Contact Sgt. Monica Cunningham at the New Hampton Police Department if you have any questions 744-5423.
 
The New Hampton Police Department would also like to make residents aware of another phone scam that has occurred here in town. There have been at least two calls that we know of. The caller claimed to be the grandson of the resident and explained that they needed money to get them out of jail in Florida. In this case, the grandchild did live in Florida and it was plausible that the grandchild could have been in a jail in Florida but the resident was wary and did not send money. Please be cautious of callers that claim to be a family member. These callers are smart and will say things to make you believe it is actually a relative calling. It is possible through the internet to get person’s dates of birth and address so they may even have some personal information of the family member. If you receive a call like this and believe it to be true, obtain a call back number and call a police officer at the New Hampton Police Department. We can verify for you if the call is legitimate.
 
Please contact Sgt. Cunningham at the New Hampton Police Department, 744-5423, if you have any questions or concerns.
