ACSWMD announces COVID-19 Closure and Precautions

PLEASE NOTE: We have enacted more stringent policies during this time to minimize exposure by limiting residential traffic. Those policies take effect Monday, March 30th. Click here to read the latest.

 

Addison County Solid Waste Management District is monitoring the impact of COVID-19 with State health agencies. As a precaution, we are closing our Administrative Office and instructing office employees to work remotely until further notice. Presently the District Transfer Station and HazWaste Center continue to operate with regular hours. However, due to the continually changing landscape concerning this virus and the potential impact to our employees, we may have to close programs or modify facility hours without advanced notice. We will post any changes to programs or facility hours at www.acswmd.org, on Front Porch Forum and on our Facebook page.

Our Request to Patrons:
To keep the District Transfer Station operating efficiently and to minimize exposure to employees and patrons, we request the following: 

– Please limit District Transfer Station use to essential visits and materials only. Essential materials include: trash, blue-bin recycling, and food scraps. This will help us keep traffic moving and enable us to continue to provide these important services. NOTE: The District Transfer Station cannot accept weekly household trash and recycling directly from residents at this time. These materials need to be taken to a Town Drop-Off or picked up by a curbside hauler. The District Transfer Station can accept food scraps directly from residents. 

– Please remember that all District Transfer Station programs are do-it-yourself (DIY) programs. Our staff is unable to assist in unloading customers’ materials. This long-standing position to prevent employee injury is even more important now to help maintain social distancing recommendations and prevent the spread of this virus.

– If you’re feeling under the weather, we encourage you to stay home and visit our facility when you are feeling better. This helps protect our workers and other customers.

Please Note:
If you need to speak with someone from our Administrative Office, please call (802) 388-2333, and leave a message at their phone extension. We will be checking messages periodically. Or, if it is important that you reach managers, their cellphone numbers are:  Teri Kuczynski (District Mgr.) - (802) 377-9309, Patti Johnson (Business Mgr.) - (802) 558-1159, Don Maglienti (Program Mgr.) - (802) 881-5505, Gary Hobbs (Tr. Station Supervisor) - (802) 989-9049, Jessie-Ruth Corkins (Outreach Coordinator) - 802-236-5664.
