DEA Drug Take Back Day – Every spring and fall, health departments and drug disposal sites around the country join the Drug Enforcement Agency in holding National Prescription Drug Take Back Days. This twice-yearly event provides a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications, while educating about the potential for medication misuse, accidental ingestion and overdose. During the 2020 Fall event, Vermonters disposed of 4,498 pounds of medication.

Permits

RESIDENTS of the SWAC communities may also purchase a non-district permit to utilize the Rutland County Solid Waste District (RCSWD) Gleason Road transfer station and hazardous waste depot. This permit allows access to the Gleason Road facility and provides drop off of household hazardous waste and trash disposal at current rates, and access to recycling drop-offs.
