The Addison County Solid Waste Management District is implementing further measures at the District Transfer Station in Middlebury to reduce the potential for exposure to staff and customers to the COVID-19 virus. Beginning Monday, March 30th, the District Transfer Station will limit residential traffic to only residents dropping off food scraps or acquiring compost supplies, including SoilSavers, Kitchen Collectors or food scrap buckets. These exceptions have been put in place to allow residents to continue to comply with Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, which bans food scraps from the trash beginning July 1, 2020. All other District programs will be temporarily closed for residential use.
The District Transfer Station will remain open with normal operating hours to commercial haulers and all area businesses, who will continue to have access to the range of services ACSWMD provides. Haulers will continue to collect trash and blue bin recyclables (and food scraps, if a hauler offers it) at the curb. Please check with your Town to learn the latest information on your local Town Drop-off.
The ACSWMD administrative office is currently closed for the foreseeable future, but we will be checking phone and email messages on a regular basis. For further assistance or information, please check out our website at www.AddisonCountyRecycles.org. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation as we work toward protecting the health of our employees and communities. Thank you.
