Hinesburg, VT — The Chittenden Solid Waste District (CSWD) has decided to close the Hinesburg Drop-Off Center at 907 Beecher Hill Rd. until construction of the Town of Hinesburg’s new highway garage is complete.
The final day of operation at the Hinesburg Drop-Off Center will be Saturday, December 2nd.
“We value the strong partnership we have with the Town of Hinesburg, and after thoughtful discussions with local leadership, we decided to close the Drop-Off Center in order to support their construction efforts,” says Sarah Reeves, General Manager of CSWD. “We understand the value of a smooth construction process, and the best way for us to help that process is to give the contractors plenty of room to maneuver.”
The Hinesburg Drop-Off Center has shared a location with the town’s highway garage since 1993.
While the Hinesburg Drop-Off Center is closed, CSWD encourages customers to use the Williston Drop-Off Center at 1492 Redmond Rd. The Williston Drop-Off Center is open six days per week, Monday – Saturday from 8:00am to 3:30pm.
As the most spacious of CSWD’s Drop-Off Centers, the Williston location accepts the widest variety of materials of any CSWD Drop-Off Center. CSWD is currently investing in compactors and a new layout that will improve accessibility and accommodate more visitors.
“We are making improvements at the Williston Drop-Off Center that will substantially enhance the customer experience, including a new traffic pattern, better parking, and compactors for trash and recycling that are easier to access,” says District Engineer Brian Wright.
In addition to all the materials accepted at the Hinesburg location, the Williston Drop-Off Center also accepts clean wood, furniture, drywall, and bulky items.
CSWD also operates Drop-Off Centers in Milton, Essex, Richmond, South Burlington, and Burlington. All CSWD Drop-Off Centers are open to the public, regardless of town of residence.
Residents who wish to have their trash and recyclables picked up while the Drop-Off Center is closed can find contact information for licensed haulers at www.cswd.net/haulers.
