All programs at the Gleason Road Transfer Station are now open, except for Hazardous Waste.
HAZARDOUS WASTE DROP-OFF
Beginning Tuesday, June 23, anyone with an RCSWD permit may schedule an appointment to drop off hazardous waste at 14 Gleason Rd in Rutland. Appointment times are half-hour slots between 11 AM and 2 PM Tuesdays through Saturdays (subject to change and availability).
RCSWD will visit each district town’s transfer station to collect household hazardous waste (HHW) on specified Saturdays. Due to the Covid-19 environment, we have instated new requirements for your participation in this program. These include: prepare a list of HHW to drop-off before arrival, remain in your car until the collection staff allow you to exit, and abide by limits for dropping off reasonable quantities. Please read the following post to see the revised schedule, and before bringing your HHW for drop-off.
STARTING TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2020, the Regional Transfer Station at 14 Gleason Road will re-open our programs to accept freon-containing appliances and clothing & shoe donations. See below for what specific items will be accepted or not.
You must unload materials yourself. As we evaluate the success of opening this program, maintaining safety, we will look at when to resume other programs. A slow turn of the spigot will get us through these challenging times together. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Please see our “Public Service Announcement” about limiting transfer station visits to essential items:
