You must have a Transfer Station sticker on your vehicle in order to use the facility. Stickers may be obtained during regular hours of operation, Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Please bring your vehicle registration and the actual vehicle as the sticker is placed on the window at that time.  If you are new to Goffstown and have not changed your address on your registration, you must bring in a piece of mail with your name and new Goffstown address. The stickers are free.
