R&L to pick up Salisbury trash
SALISBURY — Salisbury officials are reminding residents their municipal landfill will stop accepting trash on Saturday, Aug. 31, after which R&L Haulers will begin running a mini transfer station at the site off Upper Plains Road.
As recently reported by the Independent, the Salisbury “dump” is ending its more than 30-year run and its status as the state’s last operating unlined landfill. While it will no longer accept garbage, it will continue to offer other amenities — such as a drop-off site for scrap metal, electronics and yard waste. It will also maintain a shed at which folks can leave or take good-quality, reusable items.
Salisbury officials were pleased to lock in a hauler to manage the new local transfer station. R&L will collect and bring local trash and recyclables to the Addison County Solid Waste Management facility in Middlebury.
