Recycling / Solid Waste

Open Tuesday and Saturday 8am-4pm

Effective Saturday, April 4th, 2020:


We will only accept the following materials:
Regular, bagged, household trash
Blue Bin recyclables (standard household recyclables - bottles, cans, cardboard, etc.)

Food scraps

We will NOT accept any other materials at this time. *See below. If you have any questions please call (802) 295-3622 for clarification.


There will be a THREE (3) 40 pound/30-gallon bag limit per trip for all facility users.


Greater Upper Valley District (non-Hartford residents) users may purchase Punch Cards only, at the flat rate of $50. We will no longer be selling individual coupons. We will honor existing punch cards or single coupons.
GUV District users without windshield sticker permits will be allowed to use the facility at this time, with no additional charge.


Please bring exact change or a check.


Please bring a writing utensil to mark your own punch card under observation at the scale house.


Please sort your recycling prior to arrival at the facility to minimize the time you spend at the facility.


Please continue to use the recommended social distancing and safety practices as recommended by the CDC.


Although we understand that many people are home right now and engaging in home projects or spring cleaning, we cannot accept waste generated from clean outs, projects, and yard work. Loads that do not meet the restrictions above will be rejected. We encourage you to work with private haulers to meet those disposal needs.


Please call us at (802) 295-3622 or email Hannah Tyler, Director of Public Works, at htyler@hartford-vt.org with any questions.


Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we all adapt to the rapidly changing situation.
