Solid Waste Management Program

We all generate waste, be it packaging from food or other consumer products, grass clippings & branches from our yards or broken or obsolete electronics. If disposed of inappropriately, these wastes could create nuisances, environmental hazards or public health risks. Use the information on the Solid Waste Management webpages to learn how to properly store, treat, transport and dispose of solid waste materials.  


The 2018 Vermont Organics Recycling Summit is on April 5, 2018 at the Vermont Technical College. Click here for more information.


Let nature do the work. Compost leaf and yard debris at home or bring it to a transfer station. It's illegal to put it in the trash.
