Latest News

Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law

Vermont’s new solid waste legislation, Act 148, focuses on recyclables and organics. It will provide convenience and choices for solid waste generators, including individuals, and will lead to more consistent services throughout the state. To learn more about this law, click here. You can also look at and/or download the new universal recycling symbols for recycling, food, and trash here.

Vermont’s Paint Stewardship Law

Vermont will begin its new Paint Stewardship Law in May 2014. The law will require the paint industry to be responsible for collecting and managing leftover architectural paint in Vermont, reducing the role of government and taxpayers. The cost of the program will be paid by manufacturers who sell paint in the state. A fee will be included in the price of paint solid in Vermont. The program will be administered by PaintCare, a non-profit organization.

Free Electronics Recycling

The Vermont E-Cycles  program started on July 1, 2011. Recycle your electronics at any site Statewide!

The GUVSWD is collecting electronics from covered entities at our office and at special events (See schedule). Covered entities include residents of Vermont, non-profits incorporated in Vermont, School Districts, and Vermont businesses employing fewer than 10 people. Covered devices include computers, computer monitors, cathode ray tubes, printers, televisions, and computer peripherals. Most other electronic devices are now banned from landfill disposal and will be accepted as well, including PDA's, MP3 players, game consoles, fax machines, wireless phones, telephones, VCr's and DVD players, and answering machines. All of the above will be accepted at no charge from covered entities at our office Monday - Friday from 8:30 'til 4:00. A fee will still be charged for electronics from non-covered entities, please call with any questions.


The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event scheduled for September 20, 2014 will be held at the Norwich Town Garage (not the Woodstock Town Garage, as initially indicated). Sorry for the confusion!


Composter bins are now in stock here at the GUV office! We are selling them for $55.00 each. Please contact us for more information or if you would like to have one set aside for you.
