WEST LEBANON, N.H. (WCAX) – The Lebanon Landfill serves nearly two dozen towns in New Hampshire and Vermont. Beginning this year, the majority of those residents will need to change the way they throw out their trash. The color purple will now be a common sight at the landfill in West Lebanon, a change that might need a bit of a learning curve. While punch cards can still be used by Lebanon residents, all non-Lebanon residents who use the facility must now bag their trash in the required purple bags. More recycling options are now available, most notably plastic shopping bags and clothes. All residents who live in the solid waste district, which serves 22 towns in all, must also get a new permit with a $5 fee. The purple bags can be purchased at several area supermarkets, as well as the CVS near the landfill.
