Transfer Station

Spring Yard Waste Collection

The Hampton Public Works Department will conduct the annual springtime curbside pickup of yard waste (leaves, grass clippings, pine needles, etc.) during the week of April 25 through April 29, 2016 on the regular rubbish day.

Residents are reminded to put this material in either biodegradable paper bags or loose in trash barrels and free of any trash or paper products because this material will be composted.  Twigs, branches, or brush may only be taken to the transfer station and will not be picked up at the curb.

Anyone with questions should call the Public Works Department Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 3:00 PM, 926-3202.”

"The presence of some plastic bags in the Hampton Recycle Carts is a problem that needs to be corrected. Please follow the guidelines below.

Acceptable plastic bags in the Recycle Carts include only: The only acceptable bags in the Recycle Carts are the light weight plastic bags one receives at the checkout counter from grocery stores and stores such at Walmart. These bags should be place in the Recycle Carts with nothing inside them except other similar bags, and the outside bag should be tied off.

Unacceptable plastic bags include: All green, black or white bags used for trash, garbage, yard waste and etc. should NOT be used for recycling and instead go directly into the Trash Carts if used for some other purpose. Also unacceptable are the clear plastic bags used to cover newspapers, loaves of bread and etc. The bags used for produce from the grocery store and the plastic film used to wrap food, as well as cases of water bottles and etc. are also not acceptable in he Recycle Carts. These bags should go in the Trash Carts or see the alternative below.

Alternative for Recycling some plastic bags: All plastic grocery bags, bread bags, and plastic films used for wrapping products can be recycled at the plastic bag recycling bin found at local grocery and retail store locations.

All the heavier green, black or white trash bags should go in the Trash Cart. Also, all forms of styrofoam should be placed in the Trash Cart."
