Valley Regional Recycling & Transfer Facility Open for Business

With the closure of Northampton’s municipal landfill drawing near, some have expressed concern about how local citizens will dispose of their trash. In particular, there has been concern that the pay-as-you-throw option would go away. Valley Regional Recycling & Transfer Facility has just opened up to provide a private waste disposal alternative. Their facility is located at 234 Easthampton Road in Northampton. Their home page provides pricing and hours:

According to the website, “The facility is operated by Volume Recycling Associates Inc. (VRA) which together with Duseau Trucking is owned by the Duseau Family. Founded in 1947 by Armand Duseau Sr., Duseau Trucking is an independent, family-owned and operated small business that has been responsibly handling the waste and recycling needs of thousands of businesses and residents in the Pioneer Valley for more than half a century.”
