We opened a seasonal HHW Depot to offer a more convenient way to dispose of bathroom cleaners, nail polish remover, paint, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, etc. We will re-open in May 2023 and operate until the end of September. Call Mary O'Brien at 802-674-9235 for an appointment and directions to the Depot.
SWWCSWMD residents only
$10/car for up to 10 gallons of HHW (no charge for paint)
Small businesses must pay for disposal costs and pre-register.
If you just have paint to recycle, and the cans are labeled and not leaking, you can bring them to your local participating retailer (we'll take the rest at our HHW Depot):
