ACSWMD receives environmental grant
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 earmarked 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 landfill.
The District HazWaste Center at 1223 Route 7 South in Middlebury is open year-round, 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.
