  • April 26
  • May 10

There will be a hazardous waste collection at the Stafford Highway Garage on Route 19 on October 11.  All collections take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Saturdays.

The drop-off is free to town residents but the Town is billed $43 per participating vehicle, therefore, it is requested that residents bring as many hazardous materials as possible to the collection site, possibly car-pooling with neighbors.

Items Not Accepted

  • Asbestos
  • Smoke detectors
  • Compressed gas cylinders
  • Ammunition
  • Fireworks
  • Explosives
  • Fire extinguishers

Motor oil and antifreeze may be disposed of at the Transfer Station at no charge to Vernon residents.

I see the list of "Items Not Accepted". I'm wondering what else is considered "hazardous waste" and is there a list of items that you do accept?
