Recycling Information

Chittenden residents have been recycling for many years, and each year the volume of waste increases that gets recycled. Each pound that is recycled is one less pond that the town does not have to pay a premium price to dispose of. There is a hauling fee and processing fee for recyclables. These fees are much less than what would be paid if they were taken to a landfill or incinerator.

Canussa – Hersmann, located in St. Albans, Vermont, picks up all the paper products, with the exception of boxboard.


Rechargeable and  Single Use Batteries (Primary) (batteries weighing up to 9 lbs.)

Cell Phones

Corrugated Cardboard

Brown corrugated cardboard only.


Seven or fewer Computers, laptops, monitors, televisions, printers, and peripherals are accepted at the facility for FREE from any Vermont resident. Please speak with Transfer Station Attendant for further information.

Food Scraps

In a rural community such as Chittenden, most people have a garden that would flourish with home composting. It is a simple process, and it doesn’t have to smell or attract unwanted creatures. Food waste takes up a lot of space in the roll-off container, and add to unnecessary tonnage. Why pay a lot of money to get rid of something that recycles so easily?

If you live in an apartment or don’t have space to compost, maybe a friend, landlord, or neighbor would be willing to take your compostable material.

Leaf and. Yard Waste

Leaves, grass clippings, branches, and wood chips are accepted.  Other options –  start a pile and compost at home.
