Grant targets hazardous home products

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District recently received a grant of $40,796 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. The grant is being used to help fund household hazardous waste collection and disposal for the District’s 21 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 transfer station on Route 7 South in Middlebury is now open with limited access. The station plans to eventually resume its year-round collection hours every Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., and Saturdays, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. For more information, contact Don Maglienti at 802-388-2333, ext. 222, or visit AddisonCountyRecycles.org.
