Lakes Region Household Hazardous Product Facility

Description of Services
The Lakes Region Household Hazardous Product Facility represents three towns, Alton, Tuftonboro, and Wolfeboro, working cooperatively to maximize safe, appropriate disposal of household hazardous waste (HHW) and unwanted pharmaceuticals.  

Households should visit the Solid Waste Facility to get a free pass (different from a “dump” sticker) prior to attending the third Saturday of the month from May thru October.

Pet and human pharmaceuticals are collected with HHW at the 404 Beach Pond Road site during June and August.  (Alton has a second Saturday of July HHW collection and also disposes of medicines the second Saturday of September.)

Small quantity generator (businesses) disposal can be arranged with advanced notice when brought to the site.

Part-time employees:  Janice Andrea administers a brief survey to attendees.  Medicine collections require a pharmacist, 2police officer, and Amy Capone-Muccio who does data entry inventories of prescription drugs.
