Conway has been very successful in its recycling efforts. The Town manages to save a great deal of money each year by doing so. The Board of Health has a flyer describing how to separate cans, bottles, plastics, paper, etc. and explains the procedures for disposing of hazardous wastes, tires, large appliances, etc. and other rules for using the facility. There is a shed for exchange of clothing, shoes and a small number of books. There is also a large metal container for the collection of books which will be recycled off-site (no browsing, please). The Attendants will gladly provide information and assistance.

Permit required to use the Conway Transfer Station

Board of Health Regulations state that the use of the transfer station is limited to Conway residents who have purchased and display a special permit sticker on their vehicle. Such permits may be obtained from the transfer station attendant for $1 upon demonstration of proof of residency.
