Notice of Draft Certification for North Hero Drop-Off Site




EXTRA! EXTRA! Hot off the presses! (Hot off the servers, actually!)


Here's a downloadable PDF of the NWSWD Spring Newsletter. (Sorry, but it's not a copy that prints easily unless you have 11 x 17 paper. But, we're working to fix that.) In the meantime, enjoy. It contains our just-out Household Hazardous Waste Collection schedule for the summer and lots of other great info.


Paper copies are available at all NWSWD Drop-Off sites.




We need your help!! NWSWD is looking for part-time help for our drop-off sites (and possibly more down the road for motivated workers).
