The Town of Hartford operates a Solid Waste/Recycling Transfer Center at the site of the former Town landfill at 2590 North Hartland Road that sits on about 19 acres of property. The facility also includes a Construction and Demolition (C&D) facility. The five villages in the Town of Hartford (Hartford, Quechee, White River Junction, Wilder and West Hartford) are eligible to use the facility. The facility is also used by the 10 towns who are members of the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District. Several towns from New Hampshire are allowed to use the construction and demolition area.

The entire facility is operated under enterprise fund accounting rules which means that the facility has to be sustained by user fees and permits. General fund tax dollars do not fund the facility. 

At the facility recycling can either be done in a heated building which allows users to separate and dispose of accepted recyclables.  Accepted recyclables are:  glass, plastics #1-7, corrugated cardboard, boxboard, newspapers, mixed paper, and metal cans. We also offer free electronics:  televisions and computers and computer related equipment, free fluorescent bulbs and also automotive batteries, refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, tires, used motor oil and antifreeze for a fee.  With guidance from our staff large quantities of separated recyclables can be disposed of down back directly into the appropriate roll off container. 

The facility also administers the residential curbside recycling program that is suported by general fund taxes.  Recently the curbside recycling program went to zero sort operations which allows residents to mix all accepted recycling in the same curbside container.  Acceptable recycling:  glass, plastics #1-7, corrugated cardboard, boxbord, newspapers, mixed paper and metal cans. According to Northeast Waste who provides this service, residential curbside participation is about 50% when part time residential occupancy is factored in.

Beneficial reuse opportunities exist on site at the transfer station beyond traditional recycling. The Town leases space to the Good Buy Store (802) 296-6373 which is operated by SEVCA. SEVCA is a non-profit organization that takes in donations and resells them at a reduced price. This organization helps us reduce the amount of material being sent to the landfill by accepting clothing, shoes, furniture, and household items.

The Solid Waste complex houses an Education Building, Recycling Building, Scale House, HHW Building and the Administrative office. Staffing is provided by a supervisor, 2 full time attendants, an administrative assistant and 2 part time attendants.
