Trash

Materials that can be sent to landfills include household and business trash, construction and demolition debris and other materials NOT banned from those landfills. Banned items include paints, stains, varnishes, tires, waste oil and filters, recyclables, mercury added products, electronics, organics including food scraps, batteries, appliances, hazardous materials, explosives and propane cylinders.

Trash disposal within the geographic area covered by the Alliance is managed through contracted curbside collection by private commercial haulers or individual drop-off locations at local transfer stations.

Did you know?

It is illegal to burn or dump trash anywhere in the state of Vermont!

All Vermonters need to properly manage their solid waste to protect our air, land, waterways, and the public’s health. Vermont’s landfill space is limited with only one landfill located near the Canadian border in Coventry, Vermont. Each of us can reduce the amount of waste we generate by buying less, look for items with less packaging, and recycle materials wherever possible.

Each transfer station is independently run either by a corporate or municipal entity with its own fee structure. Check with your local municipal entity to determine the costs to dispose of trash or other material.

Private commercial haulers set their own fees based on weight and frequency of collection. Check with a variety of haulers to compare fees.

If you have questions, contact Paula Kamperman or Michael Batcher. You can also contact your town offices and haulers for assistance and information.
