The next 2019 household hazardous waste collection will be held on WEDNESDAY, September 18, 2019 at Springfield Transfer Station, 135 Fairground Road/100 Recycle Road. The event will run from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. We will also co-host a household hazardous waste event on SATURDAY, October 5, 2019 at the Hartford Transfer Station on Route 5 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. We are collaborating with the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District on that collection.
If you need to properly dispose of HHW before then, you can bring it to the Rutland Transfer Station. Call first for details, 802-775-7209. If you just have paint to recycle, and the cans are labeled and not leaking, you can bring them to your local participating retailer.
