Universal Recycling Law Survey
The Windham Solid Waste Management District (WSWMD) represents 20 towns in Windham and Bennington Counties and is dedicated to encourage residents, businesses and institutions to recycle, reuse and reduce materials that would otherwise be disposed of in the landfill. To help improve educational efforts it is important to get your feedback on Vermont's new Universal Recycling Law (Act 148). Please participate in the survey by visting WSWMD Universal Recycling Law Survey.
Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law (Act 148)
“Universal Recycling (Act 148) is new Vermont solid waste legislation that focuses on recyclables and organics.” The law will provide convenient collection services across the state. Over the next seven years, mandated recyclables, leaf and yard debris, clean wood scraps, and food scraps will become illegal to throw away.
To learn more about mandated recyclables, materials banned from the landfill, timeline of the law for residents, collection services that will be required by law, and the food scrap reduction hierarchy, please view the Act 148 Summary Sheet.
For more information on the law please visit Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law.

Swap Shop Now Open Every Saturday
Hours of Operation
Saturdays - 9:00 a.m. to Noon
Because we need to close promptly at noon, large loads of donations may not be accepted after 11:45am.
The WSWMD Swap Program on Old Ferry Road is a free outlet for materials that are still usable but for which there is no traditional re-use program. People are asked to use all other available outlets before bringing items to the Swap Shop
To make items available to all persons, for their personal use, and not to allow one or a few persons to monopolize the facility. Therefore, any Swap Program Volunteer has the right to restrict or refuse an individual's access to the facility for whatever reason. The Swap Program is not intended to be a resource for dealers or metal salvagers.
