Recycling in Downtown Burlington
The City of Burlington has a curbside recycling Blue Box program for single-family residences. Residents (including students) may receive a free Blue Box to set out for recycling pickup.
To get a blue box, either pick one up at 645 Pine Street, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or contact the Burlington Department of Public Works. (Please do not take the UVM-issue recycle boxes when you move out of your residence hall. We need these for next year's students!)
Find out what day the City picks up recycling on your street.
The City of Burlington does not
have a municipal
pickup system. Contact your landlord or a private waste hauler
(see “Rubbish & Garbage Removal” in the
Yellow Pages) to make
to have your trash disposed of properly. Please do not use University recycling bins or trash
from off-campus locations. (This is considered
dumping and violators will be investigated. Seriously.)
