Trash District lands $24,000 for hazardous waste collection

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District has received a grant of $24,526 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. The grant will be used to help fund household hazardous waste collection for the District’s 19 member towns.
Residents of these towns are able to bring household hazardous waste such as paint, paint thinners, cleaning products, herbicides, pesticides, automotive products and other toxic chemicals to the District’s HazWaste Center in Middlebury for safe and proper disposal, at no charge. These wastes are prohibited from disposal as trash in order to keep toxic, flammable, and corrosive materials out of Vermont’s landfills. The District HazWaste Center at 1223 Route 7 South in Middlebury receives these wastes Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-noon, and Saturdays, 9 a.m.-noon.
