Our Objective

If you live in one of the SWAC towns and have questions about what to do with trash, recycling, or hazardous waste, this is the site for you!

The SWAC towns work cooperatively to manage hazardous and solid waste in a cost-effective, environmentally responsible manner.

There is information on this site to help you reduce, reuse, recycle and properly dispose of your trash and hazardous waste.

Depending on the service you need, the links will lead you to the right place. If you don’t find what you need, just contact us, and we’ll be happy to assist you. We want this site to be informative and easy to use. If you find something which could be improved, just let us know.
