Clothing and Textile Recycling

Recycling Clothing & Textiles Just Got Easier!Helpsy_Logo_Hunter_RGB (2)

The Town of Hampton, through the DPW, is now partnering with HELPSY to offer FREE curbside pick-up of clothing and household textiles for residents.  Pickups will happen weekly on Sundays. Residents can schedule a pickup online.

The new textile program will be going into effect on February 5, 2022.  Anything you can wear, sleep in, or dry yourself off with is accepted! This includes any type of material composed of natural or synthetic fibers such as products made from wool, silk, linen, cotton, polyester, leather, vinyl, hemp, and rayon. Items can be donated in any condition (torn, worn, stained, missing buttons, broken zippers, etc.) as long as they are clean, dry, and odorless. Check out the guidance information below to help answer your questions:

According to the EPA, Textile waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the United States…occupying nearly 5% of all landfill space. The U.S. throws away 36 billion pounds of textiles each year…that is nearly 100 pounds per person. Of those discarded textiles, currently only 15% is recycled, but 95% could be.  

Let's do our part to be Part of the Solution.

Yard Waste

compostYard Waste can be brought to the Transfer Station during open hours.  Leave/yard waste is to be separated from branches, brush and tree wood as they are composted.  The scale house attendant will direct you to the correct location for disposal.  Depending on staffing levels, weather and availability of vehicles, the DPW does a fall leaf pick up.  It is usually scheduled for the 3rd week in November to allow time for the majority of the leaves to fall. Notices will be sent out through Notify Me. ®

Food Waste Composting

The Town of Hampton has contracted with Mr. Fox Composting to collect food waste and other compostable materials for composting!  Town Residents may bring compost material (no more than 5 gallon pails/buckets), for no charge, to the Transfer Station to be disposed of in dedicated barrels which will be collected by Mr. Fox Composting and processed off-site for reuse.  This educational material for Food Composting can be used to help understand what can and cannot be brought to the Transfer Station to be composted.  What a better way to reduce waste and the landfill space it takes to dispose of it.  The Town will save on disposal costs and as a whole we will reduce our carbon footprint.

Latex Paint

Latex water-based paint is not considered household hazardous waste. To dispose of it at the Transfer Station the paint must be completely dry. To learn about how to dispose of latex water-based paint, view the Paint Disposal Instructions (PDF).


Clean, dry paper can be recycled whole or shredded.  We ask that if you are recycling shredded paper that you put it into a paper bag or cardboard box to keep the small pieces of paper from blowing all over your neighborhood when the cart is lifted/dumped into the truck or all over the Transfer Station if bringing it to recycle yourself. Please do not use plastic bags!   

Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Light Bulbs

The DPW wants to remind everyone that there are two categories of lightbulbs when you are considering disposal. Please take the time to review and make sure to dispose of them correctly for your safety and the safety of others.
