Why is CSWD limiting materials at this site?

The site’s size limitations and the safety concerns to our staff and our customers were the main reasons for this change. Safety concerns were present before the COVID-19 pandemic but have become more acute with new physical distancing and safety protocols.

Is this change permanent? 

Though CSWD will be continually evaluating site operations, this change will be in place for the foreseeable future. The CSWD Drop-Off Center located at 87 Landfill Rd. in South Burlington is open to the public and accepts trash and recycling and other materials.

New Site Layout 

The reorganized Pine Street site has five lanes of food scrap containers, allowing customers to pull into the site safely, easily, and efficiently. A separate area is designated for pedestrians and bicyclists.
