Trash and Recycling

Whitingham currently uses dual-stream recycling. We collect paper in one dumpster and metal, glass and plastic containers in another dumpster. (Please rinse your containers before recycling.) The Lions Club collects returnable cans and bottles on site.

Transfer Station

The Transfer Station receives general supervision from Stanley Janovsky (368-2466). Its day to day operations are addressed by the Transfer Station Attendant (368-7876). Routine business questions may be answered in the Selectboard Office by Gig Zboray (368-7500).  In order to use the Transfer Station you MUST be a Whitingham resident/property owner AND have a permit which can be purchased in the Town Clerk's office.

At the Whitingham Transfer Station, we encourage residents and visitors to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
