2012-2013 Vehicle Permits
Vehicle permits required for access to Northampton’s two residential drop-off centers are available from attendants at each facility as well as the DPW office (8:30-4:00 Monday-Friday).
This permit costs $25 for residential vehicles, $5 for a second vehicle from the same household. Income–eligible residents may receive a discount (of up to $60 per fiscal year) through the DPW office. Permits for non-resident caregivers can also be obtained at the DPW office.
