The state of Vermont’s temporary flood-damaged hazardous waste storage site in Middlesex is closing permanently this Saturday at 4pm – please communicate this information to your town residents!
If folks still have any hazardous debris to get rid of, make sure to bring it in this week or use the resources below to locate another site near you.
The collection site is located at the former Middlesex Police Barracks at 1078 US Route 2 in Middlesex. Hazardous waste drop-off is available Monday through Saturday between 10am – 4pm.
As a reminder, residents can bring flood-related HHW materials to this collection site, such as:
∙ Paints, stains, sealers, and paint strippers
∙ Propane and other gas cylinders
∙ Fluorescent bulbs
∙ Mercury devices
∙ Products with warning labels like “Caution, warning, toxic, danger, hazard, poisonous, reactive, corrosive, or flammable”
Please note that fireworks, explosives, and ammunition will not be accepted at this site – to dispose of these items, please contact the Vermont State Police at (802) 244-8727.
Businesses can bring up to ten 5-gallon containers of flood-related hazardous waste to these collection sites – businesses that generate hazardous waste or have larger quantities of flood-damaged hazardous waste should call the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Hazardous Materials Program at (802) 828-1138 for assistance.
If you can’t make it to Middlesex, check the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s Flood-Related Hazardous Materials Assistance page for a full list of collection sites across the state: Flood Related Hazardous Materials Assistance | Department of Environmental Conservation (vermont.gov).
CVSWMD also has a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event (for District residents only) coming up on August 26th at the Bradford Town Garage, and our final collection event of the season on September 30th at the Montpelier Department of Labor.
