McNeil Generating Station
Waste Wood Yard
111 Intervale Road, Burlington, VT 05401
The wood that is dropped off there is generated into electricity at the McNeil Generating Station. Yard waste (smaller than six cubic yards) is composted at the Green Mountain Compost facility in Williston.
The yard accepts clean waste wood at no charge, including wood that has never been painted, stained, treated or glued; brush, tree trimmings, trunks and limbs up to six feet long and two feet in diameter; stumps up to two feet in diameter that are free of dirt and stones.
