Hazardous Waste

Home » Hazardous Waste



Hazardous waste includes any unused product that is poisonous, reactive, corrosive, or flammable. You can easily identify hazardous products by reading packaging labels. Look for key words such as “Warning!” “Danger!” “Poison!” “Caution!” Such products include certain paints, cleaners, stains and varnishes, car batteries, motor oil, and pesticides.

There are two options for disposing of hazardous waste produced in-home:


  1. Drop it off at our Regional Transfer Station HHW Depot on Gleason Road in Rutland.
  2. Hours of operation: 7 AM – 3 PM Monday through Saturday.
  3. Take it to one of the Rural HHW collection events at your local transfer station throughout the year.




Hazardous waste produced by commercial entities, such as automobile shops, is often too much for our facilities to handle, and must be permitted through the VT Department of Environmental Conservation. Small businesses that don’t produce much hazardous waste may be Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQGs), and can dispose of products in the same manner as residents (see above). To find out if your business is exempt from permitting, visit this page: CESQG.
