While many other Transfer Stations have chosen to close their Swap Shops, we feel strongly about the overall benefit to 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 here in Henniker. Although it is in definite 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.
