Solid Waste: For disposal of solid waste, including recycling, Pawlet residents may use one of the nearby transfer stations in the region. The closest option is on Route 22 in Granville, New York — a privately run facility operated by Earth, Waste and Metal: http://earthwastesystems.com/ A second, more distant, option is the transfer station on Gleason Road in Rutland, Vermont.
Hazardous Waste: Pawlet is a member of the Solid Waste Alliance Community (SWAC), which maintains a schedule of hazardous waste disposal days for residents to rid themselves of items not disposable as ordinary transfer station waste. No fees are charged to residents of SWAC. The fees are paid for by member municipalities. For more information, see below.
