How do I get a landfill permit and where is the landfill located?

-A A +A

Landfill permits are obtained at the Town Hall in the Payments area. You will need the registration (or a copy) of the vehicle going to the landfill showing a Salem address. If you are not a Salem resident or your vehicle does not have a Salem address you will need proof that you own property in Salem and your vehicle registration. The cost of the permit is $15.00 and will expire on March 31. The fee is not pro-rated. If you are over 65 you may obtain one free permit for your personal vehicle only. Additional permits will cost $15.00. If you are totally and permanently disabled you may obtain a free permit with proof of your total disability from either Social Security or Veterans Administration. Permits have three bulky coupons attached for large items. Only one set of bulky coupons is allowed per household. You may purchase additional permits for additional vehicles but the bulky coupons will be removed from your permit.

The landfill (also called the Transfer Station) is located on Shannon Road. Take route 97 (Main St) to Hampstead Street, which will become Shannon Road. The landfill is about one mile on the left.

You may also purchase your landfill permit by mail. You will need to send a copy of your registration and a self addressed stamped envelope with your check for $15.00.
