Waste management district receives DEC grant

MIDDLEBURY — Household hazardous waste disposal is difficult. To make the process easier for county residents, the Addison County Solid Waste Management District received a grant of $29,271 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.
The grant is used to help fund household hazardous waste collection and disposal for the District’s 20 member towns.
Residents of these towns are able to bring household hazardous waste such as paints, cleaning products, herbicides, pesticides, automotive products, and many 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, corrosive, and reactive materials out of Vermont’s landfills.
The District HazWaste Center at 1223 Rt. 7 South in Middlebury receives these wastes year-round, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., and Saturdays, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. For more information, please contact Don Maglienti at 802-388-2333, ext. 222, or visit www.AddisonCountyRecycles.org.
