Transfer Stations are for large loads of trash only. If you have a smaller load and/or recycling to dispose of, please see our Drop-Off Center page.
Chittenden County Transfer Stations
Transfer stations are designed to accept loads of trash larger than 1 cubic yard (about a pickup truck full). The trash is consolidated into tractor-trailers and hauled to a lined landfill. CSWD does not own or operate any transfer stations.
Items not accepted at transfer stations:
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.
