The Rover begins its hazardous waste rounds in May

The Rover is the mobile household hazardous waste collection unit that hibernates at the CSWD Environmental Depot, our year-round hazardous waste collection facility in South Burlington.

During the summer, the Rover comes out of hibernation and makes its rounds, stopping once in each town and accepts household hazardous wastes from residents (material from businesses is not accepted at Rover events).

The Rover accepts household hazardous wastes such as paints and stains, automotive fluids, hobby supplies, pesticides, fertilizers, household cleaners, and similar items with the words Danger, Caution, Warning, or Poison on the label.

You might be surprised at some of the items considered hazardous on this list of household hazardous waste items.


The Rover is available at no charge to Chittenden County households. Fees apply to residents from other towns.
