Free E-waste Recycling!

News: Jun 24, 2011

The District is pleased to announce that we will be a registered collector under Vermont’s new E-waste Recycling Program.  Vermont’s electronic waste law banned the disposal of electronic waste starting January 1, 2011 and will provide convenient collection of certain electronic waste for all households, charities, school districts, and small businesses in Vermont for free.

Who can bring in E-waste for free?

Free collection of certain E-waste is available at the ACSWMD Transfer Station to all Vermont households, charities, school districts, municipalities, and businesses with up to 10 employees.  NOTE:  Under the new law, the free collection is available to the above-mentioned original generators of the E-waste ONLY.  Haulers transporting E-waste from other generators must still pay the standard recycling fees.

What E-waste will be accepted for free?

If you’re an eligible party as listed above, the following devices will be accepted at no charge:

  • TVs
  • Computers
  • Computer Monitors
  • Computer Peripherals (mouse, keyboard, speakers, scanner, external hard drive, etc.)
  • Printers (including all-in-one machines that print/fax/scan)

What about the rest of my E-waste?

All other E-waste not listed above will still be accepted, but the regular recycling fees still apply.
