Hazardous waste disposal now free of charge

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District recently received a grant of $40,589 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation to help fund household hazardous waste collection and disposal for the District’s 21 member towns.

Residents of these towns can bring household hazardous waste such as paints, cleaning products, herbicides, pesticides, automotive products, and many other toxic chemicals to the HazWaste Center in Middlebury for safe and proper disposal, at no charge. These wastes are prohibited from disposal as trash to keep toxic, flammable, corrosive, and reactive materials out of Vermont’s landfills.

The District HazWaste Center at 1223 Rt. 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, please contact Don Maglienti at 802-388-2333, ext. 222, or visit AddisonCountyRecycles.org.
