Henniker Transfer Station & Swap Shop is open to properly permitted Henniker Residents only.

Vehicle Registration and corresponding vehicle must be present to obtain decal. Current Utility bill, Henniker Tax bill, Purchase and Sales agreement, or lease/rental agreement are acceptable substitutes in the absence of vehicle registration. Decals must be placed on vehicle by a Transfer Station Employee at time of issue. Henniker residents who wish to have contractors or cleaners dispose of waste from work done on Henniker properties must provide a written statement with contact information and current decal number. This must be presented to an attendant BEFORE use of our facility.


On April 19, 2022 the Selectboard voted to allow the acceptance of brush at the Transfer Station during regular hours in the designated area.  Brush must be inspected for non-conforming items before depositing in the designated area. Effective July 1, 2021 the town PERMANENTLY discontinued burning brush at the transfer station.  The town recognizes the importance of having a place to safely discard brush and is evaluating methods of brush disposal.  Brush may still be brought to: Cousineau Forest Products located at 1310 Old Concord Road, Henniker, NH Cousineau fees are as follows:  (Prices subject to change)


While many other Transfer Stations have chosen to close their Swap Shops, we feel strongly about the overall benefit of keeping ours open.  Swap Shops reduce the amount of solid waste hauled from our facility which in turn saves YOU money!  It is also a truly valuable resource for our community.  Although it is in need of fine tuning to keep unacceptable items out, for the most part it has far more benefit than problem.  Please help us to keep it that way!  Please donate items that are in clean, reusable order.  Items that may not be placed in the swap shop regardless of working order are as follows:

No car seats, dangerous items or any items associated with a fee, example: Freon items, Televisions, etc. Please see Attendant should you have questions.


SWAP SHOP Hours of Operation:
