Transfer Station – What We Accept
At our South Royalton, Vermont location, the White River Alliance Transfer Station accepts a variety of products for disposal, recycling or composting at our transfer station.
For a fee, the White River Alliance transfer station accepts bulk waste, furniture, appliances, scrap metal, batteries, waste oil, antifreeze, tires, electronics and other products. Please click here for a full price list.
The White River Alliance accepts most recyclable items at our transfer station. Recycling is a simple and effective way to preserve natural resources and reduce global energy demands. Processing recyclables is significantly less expensive than landfill disposal and results in new products, new jobs, and less environmental liability. Recycling sustains an economy based on the regeneration of goods, not the indefinite throughput of goods destined for a landfill. The White River Alliance accepts most recyclable items.

The White River Alliances also processes organic waste at our transfer station. “Organics”, or organic material, is any plant or animal material or byproduct which will decompose into the soil. Food scraps like carrot tops, egg shells, coffee grounds, and bread crusts—as well as leaves, grass, and wood—are all organic materials. Paper napkins and paper towels are made from wood pulp and will also decompose into the soil. Please visit our Food Waste Composting page. Need a compost bin. We sell them.
To Dispose of Hazardous Waste, please contact us about Household Hazardous Waste Days. Hazardous wastes have properties or contain chemicals which make them dangerous or capable of having harmful effects on public health or on the environment. The hazardous properties are ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity. A hazardous waste is considered to have been “generated” when it is put into a container for disposal or a determination has been made that the material is no longer usable. Hazardous wastes managed in the course of running a business – this includes wastes from municipalities and from businesses operated out of a home – are regulated by the Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (VHWMR).
