Disposal options

Durable plastics cannot be recycled in Chittenden County.

Depending on the size, durable plastic items must either be placed in your regular trash, or brought to a CSWD Drop-Off Center for disposal.

Durable plastics are those that are designed for long-term use. They are heavy duty plastics often found in coffee makers, toys, telephones, and other small household appliances.



Disposal fees apply. Check with your curbside hauler, or visit the CSWD Drop-Off Center Fee page for more info.
