Furthermore, for your convenience, we have installed a drop box next to the south entrance of the DPW building (not the side near Enterprise Rent-A-Car).

Solid Waste Disposal

Laconia is a member of the Concord Regional Solid Waste Resource Recovery Cooperative which operates a waste-to-energy incinerator to dispose of the solid waste from 17 communities.

To determine those weeks that the recycling is picked-up and the holidays that delay service, we encourage residents to use the curbside collection schedule.

Laconia is a member of the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program which operates and maintains a regional wastewater collection system and treatment plant that serves nine communities in the lakes region.
