Recycle! Good For The Environment - Good for Burlington
Did you know that when you recycle you are helping the town of Burlington to dispose of waste at less cost? It's true. In addition to helping to save our environment, recycling saves the town money. It's our job to provide a convenient place and ways for Burlington residents to dispose of most waste materials such as construction debris, brush, leaves, used waste oil, and other non-hazardous materials.
Please make sure all Trash & Recycle Barrels must be 4 ft. away from any other items, including other barrels. Thank you.
What Burlington residents need to know and do...
Starting September 1, 2008, the town began recycling all residential electronic equipment. The town's trash hauler will no longer pick up TVs, computers, monitors, or any other electronic devices. There will NOT be a fee charged at the Recycling Center for these items.
And, starting November 1, 2008, the town began charging a fee for the disposal of refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and humidifiers. The town's trash hauler will still pick-up these items during the bulk pick-up months (January, April, July & October) if they display the appropriate sticker. Residents are required to go to the Town Clerk's office and pick up a sticker to place on the item for pick-up.
It's important to remember that NO chemicals or oil based paints are accepted at the Recycling Center. Any water-based paint containers can be opened, filled with speedy dry or cat litter, dried thoroughly, and then disposed of in your regular trash. When bringing any waste, please remember all construction debris should be no longer than 4 feet in length, sheet rock needs to be separated to be placed in a separate dumpster, we do not take stumps of any kind, all leaves have to be either loose or in recycled paper bags (NO PLASTIC!).
In the Spring (April/May) and Fall (Oct./Nov.) of each year, we also provide a specific leaf dumpster for residents. All bagged leaves must be in recyclable paper bags.
We also offer chips that can be picked up at the intersection of Vineyard and Foote Road - across from the Foote Road Recreation Park.
