Solid Waste

The Solid Waste Department’s annual newsletter, The Waste Paper

, contains schedules for the entire year and other important information.

Collection Program

The Burlington Solid Waste Department provides collection of household garbage on a weekly basis. Under Burlington’s volume-based program, each residence is allowed 1 untagged 33-gallon container per week; each additional container set out for collection requires a trash tag which can be purchased from a variety of retailers. Residents are encouraged to participate in the city-contracted curbside collection of recyclables in an effort to minimize the volume of household garbage that might otherwise require the purchase of a trash tag.
