The following are facilities in Chittenden County designed for large loads only. If you have less than 1 cubic yard of any material, please visit a CSWD Drop-Off Center, or call your hauler.

All loads entering these facilities must be covered to minimize the possibility of items flying out of the vehicle. Fees are based on weight; minimum fees may apply.

Note: Many of these facilities are not owned or operated by CSWD.

Trash & other landfill material

Transfer stations are designed to accept loads of trash larger than 1 cubic yard. The trash is consolidated into tractor-trailers and hauled to a lined landfill. As of July 1, 2014, transfer stations must accept and separate mandatory recyclables.

Items banned from landfill disposal are not accepted at transfer stations (mandatory recyclables are only accepted separately from landfill-bound trash). A fee of $20 per ton (minimum fee of $60) will be assessed on loads that contain banned materials. See section 4.13 of the Solid Waste Management Ordinance for details.
