PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT

The Public Works Department is responsible for public road maintenance (including paving and repair), snow removal, and operation of the Transfer Station.

The Transfer Station is on Grove Street, and is open every day but Sunday and Monday. Check the Public Works page on the town website (http://www.town.Rye.nh.us) for Transfer Station hours of operation. Most trash, yard waste, and recyclable material can be disposed of at the Transfer Station. Only items from Rye will be accepted at the Transfer Station. A nominal fee is charged for some items such as computer monitors, batteries, stuffed furniture and insulation. The Transfer Station is now recycling fluorescent bulbs and similar mercury bulbs for $1-3 per bulb, and ballast from fluorescent fixtures for $5-10 per ballast, depending on size. Other mercury products, such as rechargeable batteries, thermostats and cell phones are accepted at no cost. Only cash is accepted when payment is required for specific items. Go to the Public Works page on the Rye website for a complete list of items that carry fees and items that will not be accepted at the Transfer Station. Free compost, sand-salt mix, and loom are all available at the Transfer Station for Rye residents.

Recycling is mandatory in Rye. Do your part. It saves the Town of Rye money and helps the environment. The Director of the Public Works, Dennis McCarthy may be reached at 309 Grove Road in Rye. Call at (603) 964-5300.
