Northwest Vermont Solid Waste Management District ordinance requires that nearly all households, schools, businesses, and organizations in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties recycle. (The only area not covered by this ordinance is the Town of Fairfax.) Furthermore, as of July 1, 2015, state law requires recycling for all Vermonters.
Trash haulers are required to provide recycling services to all residents and businesses within the Northwest Vermont Solid Waste Management District (again, all Franklin and Grand Isle County towns other than the Town of Fairfax) Haulers must provide recycling statewide as of July 1, 2015).
If you are not receiving recycling services, please call (802) 524-5986 to let us know.
To aid households in recycling, Northwest Solid Waste District provides recycling drop-offs at 6 locations (at no charge to District member town residents) around Franklin and Grand Isle Counties.
