Transfer Station Residential Permit Stickers


New YELLOW residential stickers for the Transfer Station will be issued beginning October 1, 2019.  All residents must have a new sticker by January 1, 2020.  The Department of Public Works will continue to issue Transfer Station stickers through the mail to make obtaining a sticker more convenient for residents.  If you wish to obtain a sticker by mail please mail the following documents to the Department of Public Works, 40 Pond Street, Hanover MA 02339:

  • A COPY of your current vehicle registration is required for each vehicle application in order to obtain a sticker for the vehicle.
  • If the address on the vehicle registration is different from your residence you will also need to provide a copy of a document showing your Name and Hanover residence such as driver’s license or utility bill along with a copy of the vehicle registration.
  • A self-addressed stamped envelope for us to return to you your sticker

Once the DPW receives the information for a sticker, one will be mailed back to you in the self-addressed envelope that you have provided.  The sticker must then be placed on the inside of windshield on the lower left corner of the driver’s side of the vehicle.

If obtaining the sticker through the mail is inconvenient, residents may come to the DPW office at 40 Pond Street with the proper documentation, including a copy of your current vehicle registration, and the sticker will be issued there.  Our office hours are Mon-Fri, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

If multiple vehicles require stickers the above information must be provided for each vehicle.

Weather permitting, stickers will be issued at the station on the following Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM:

  • October 5th and 6th
  • October 12th and 13th
  • October 19th and 20th
