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

Landfill permits are obtained in the bottom floor of the Town Hall in the Collections Area. You will need a current registration (or a photocopy) of the vehicle on which the landfill sticker will be going onto showing a Salem address. If you are not a Salem resident, or your vehicle registration does not have a Salem address on it, you will need to provide proof that you own property in Salem, as well as provide your current, out-of-town or -state vehicle registration.

The cost of the permit is $25.00 and expires on March 31, annually. The fee is not pro-rated. If you are 65 years of age or older, you may obtain one FREE permit for your personal vehicle, only. Each additional permit costs $25.00.

If you are totally and permanently disabled you may obtain a free permit with proof of your 100% permanent & total disability from the Veterans Administration.

Further, landfill permits come with three bulky coupons attached for large items. Only one set of landfill bulky coupons is allowed per household. You may purchase additional landfill permits for additional vehicles, but they will not include the bulky coupons.

The landfill (also called the Transfer Station or Dump) 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.
