What's New with Paint?
From now on paint will no longer be collected at our household hazardous waste even separately (and for free) thanks to the new Paint take-back recycling bill that goes into effect this spring. Look for our "PBB" - paint, battery and (fluorescent) bulb - collections on the schedule, or bring paint, batteries and fluorescent bulbs to our Additional Recyclables Collection Center (ARCC) at 540 North Main Street in Barre year round.

Paint, Battery, Bulb Collection in Chelsea August 27
On Wednesday, August 27, CVSWMD is holding a Rover Collection of Paint, Batteries & Fluorescent Bulbs at the Chelsea Transfer Station. A "rover" is a small, limited collection designed to meet the needs of residents who live in the more rural areas of the district.
Because the rover is limited, participants must call ahead to pre-register at 802-229-9383 ext. 106.
What to bring?
Click here for a complete list of the kind of paints we can and cannot accept. We will also take all kinds of batteries as long as the non-alkaline batteries are taped at each terminal end. Fluorescent tubes and bulbs must be double bagged if they are broken for your safety and the safety of our employees.
