Most C & D “waste” can actually reused or recycled. Local and Statewide Law also dictate that certain C & D materials must be recycled instead of landfilled. That means they must not be mixed with land-full bound waste (trash) in any containers. Anyone found putting these items into landfill risks fines up to $500 per incident. Burning or burying construction waste is illegal. The following C & D items must be reused or recycled. Plywood
| Clean and unpainted only
OSB (Oriented Strand Board) | Clean and unpainted only
Asphalt Shingles | Asbestos-free only
Clean Lumber and Pallets
Mandatory Recyclables | Including cardboard which must be kept clean and dry
NWSWD accepts C&D for recycling at our Georgia and North Hero drop-off sites. Prices are based on volume and are at our attendants’ discretion. We have no tipping floor and are self-service so plan to unload by hand.
Myers Recycling Center in Colchester, (802) 655-4312, accepts C&D loads that contain at least 85% recyclable material.
Highgate Transfer Station and the remainder of NWSWD sites accept small C&D loads of less than a cubic yard as landfill-bound material.
