Transfer Station Division

Hanover Transfer Station

The Transfer Station Division operates the Town's waste transfer and recycling operations.  The division's goal is to offer a cost effective means of handling the Town's solid waste needs.  The division sends roughly 4,700 tons of waste per year to the SEMASS waste to energy facility and sends 1,700 tons of recyclables to various vendors.

The transfer station division operates with a staff of three full-time employees and two part-time employees.
