The next household hazardous waste collections won't be held until May 2019. 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. Visit https://www.paintcare.org/paintcare-states/vermont/#/everyone for the closest location.
The District sponsors four events each year for the collection and safe disposal of household hazardous wastes. Residents and businesses from all member towns may participate. Businesses will be charged a fee and must pre-register. No pre-registration required for residents. The spring collection is held on the second Saturday in May at the Springfield Transfer Station from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and at an additional location that moves around the District from year to year. The fall collection is held on the second Saturday in September at the Springfield Transfer Station from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and at an additional location that moves around the District from year to year.
