Recycling & Disposal Resources in Vermont
Litter grabbers are available at stores like Home Depot and Lowes. Arcmate has a variety of grabbers available online: http://www.arcmate.com
We have also been given the creative suggestion of 16" heavy-duty kitchen tongs, which would be a more affordable option if you were looking for a larger quantity for a group clean up effort.
Illegal tire dumping is a growing problem in Vermont. Please dispose of your tires properly. Your local solid waste district accepts tires for a minimal fee.
Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District
Once again, Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District is offering grants of up to $500 to its member towns to help cover the costs of GUD waste-related disposal. Call CVSWMD if you have any questions or need more information. 802.229.9383. Another great benefit of CVSWMD membership!
