Curious about composting? Save the date—Saturday, April 25th at the South Hero Community Library.


The South Hero Community Library and Northwest Vt. Solid Waste Management District present:


Intro to Composting for Kids, 10:00am-11:00am: Children grades K-6 learn the basics about waste reduction and composting. Learn about where our trash goes, the impact of trash on our environment, and how kids can help by composting.


Introduction to Home Composting, 11:15am-12:30pm: Turn your yard and food waste into compost and learn how Vermont’s new Universal Recycling Law helps residents and businesses better manage their waste's impact on our state. Learn what composting is, why it's important, how it works, and the various types of composting in order to help you determine which is best suited to your individual needs.


Both classes are free and will be taught by Aaron Shepard of NWSWD and UVM Extension Master Composter.


For questions please contact Aaron at 524.5986 or This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it .


We sell inexpensive composters at our drop-off locations. Contact us for more info!




2015 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Schedule / Spring Newsletter


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.) It contains our Household Hazardous Waste Collection schedule for the summer and lots of other great info.


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




Attention Bakersfield Drop-Off Site Users:


Bakersfield Drop-Off Site is now open every Saturday from 8am-1pm! Enjoy!




We need your help!! NWSWD is looking for part-time drop-off site help in NE Franklin County and at our North Hero site (and possibly more down the road for motivated workers).
