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.

Refer to Lakes Region Planning Commission's web page: to view their flip book which has alternatives to hazardous waste products used in the garage, yard, and house.

Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine
Affecting hardwood firewood and ash wood-products and nursery stock

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was found in Concord in March 2013, and the list of towns with known infestations continues to grow. As a non-native insect, EAB lacks predators to keep it in check. EAB attacks ash trees and infested trees die within 3 to 5 years. Help protect New Hampshire's ash trees.  A quarantine of all hardwood firewood, ash wood-products and all ash nursery stock is in effect for Belknap, Hillsborough, Merrimack, and Rockingham counties.

Alert From New Hampton Police Department


One resident received a call from someone claiming to be their grandchild in Ecuador crying, saying she had been arrested for drunk driving and needed money. The resident asked why she didn’t sound like her granddaughter and the caller said because she had been involved in an accident and had stitches near her mouth, maybe a broken nose as well. Then a man came on the phone saying he was law enforcement and she needed to wire the money right away.  These callers are tricky and can be very convincing.  Thankfully the resident did not fall for it.

A second resident called the police stating that a male left three messages on her answering machine saying he was “Officer Eric Foster” and if they don’t call him back he “issues them Good Luck”. A Google search shows this to be an old scam that is still being used. A third popular scam especially right now is someone claiming to be from the IRS. The recipient of that call hadn’t even filed his taxes yet so he knew something wasn’t right and hung up the phone.

Although law enforcement is unable to track these numbers we want to keep residents aware of these scams and the many other that are going around. If you receive any calls do not give out ANY information or money until the recipient can be verified either by contacting the person direct or preferably through law enforcement. There will NEVER be a situation that is so dire it cannot wait until it’s verified. If any resident needs assistance with verification please call the police department. We would also ask that anyone receiving this notice to reach out to people that do not receive this newsletter and to older residents or relatives whether they live in New Hampton or even New Hampshire. This is a nationwide problem and everyone needs to be careful.
