Transfer Stations are facilities with commercial scales for weighing large loads of trash & recycling only.
If you have less than 1 cubic yard to dispose of, please see our Drop-Off Center page, or call your hauler.
CSWD does not own or operate these transfer stations.
Chittenden County Transfer Stations
Transfer stations are designed to accept loads of trash larger than 1 cubic yard (see image above). The trash is consolidated into tractor-trailers and hauled to a lined landfill. CSWD does not own or operate any transfer stations. 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.
All loads entering the transfer stations must be covered to minimize the possibility of items flying out of the vehicle. Each vehicle is weighed before and after it is unloaded. Fees are based on weight. Minimum fees apply.
Additional fees may apply to certain items, including (but not limited to):
- Computer monitors or related electronics*
*These items are banned from landfill disposal. They can be recycled at the CSWD Williston Drop-Off Center next to this Transfer Station for a much lower fee or in some cases for free.
Contact the transfer station directly for more information on fees.
Hours and rates are subject to change. Check with transfer stations for holiday schedules.
