Small and large bags, required to be able to dispose of trash at the Sheffield/Wheelock Transfer Station, are available at the Town Clerk’s office for $1.00 and $2.00 each, respectively. The aforementioned bags are NOT required to dispose of recyclable materials. Only recyclable materials are to be taken to the recycling “shed”. Click here or use the link in the Links section to go to the page containing detailed information about the required Pay Per Throw.

Since the start of mandatory recycling and Pay Per Throw at the Transfer Station, the number of trash containers needed in a given period has been reduced from three to one. This translates to a savings for the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock. The more that is recycled, the less trash needs to be carted away and the more money is saved.

Sheffield, located in the northwestern portion of Caledonia County in Vermont 's Northeast Kingdom (NEK), was chartered on October 25, 1793 and has an area of 32.62 square miles at a mean elevation of 907 feet above sea level (ASL).

Miller’s Run School ( 3249 VT Route 122, Sheffield , VT 05866 ) is administered by the Unified District 37 which is comprised of the towns of Sheffield and adjoining Wheelock and is open to pre-kindergarten to 8th grade students of both towns.

School Board meetings are held the third Monday of every month at 6:00 P.M. in the Art and Music Room at the Miller's Run School. See the links in the Links section.

Each Labor Day Sheffield holds its annual Field Day, with a parade and various activities, contests and events, to benefit the Sheffield-Wheelock Fire Department, Food Pantry, camp scholarships and other worthwhile causes.

Sheffield is the site of a 16 turbine commercial wind energy operation. The turbines are designed to generate 100,000 megawatt hours of energy, enough to power approximately 12,600 Vermont homes. The operators of the wind farm pay Sheffield $520,000 annually and some $250,000 to the State Education Fund from the operation of the wind farm.

Mathewson State Forest is a 795 acre forest located in Sheffield and the adjoining towns of Wheelock and Sutton. Mathewson State Forest offers opportunities for primitive camping, hiking and cold water fishing.

Every third Wednesday of the month, starting at 11:00 A.M., there is a free Community Lunch held at the Town Hall.

Sheffield is part of the Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District (NEKWMD). Sheffield and Wheelock jointly operate the Transfer Station where residents of both towns, after having obtained a valid permit sticker, can dispose of their household refuse and, more importantly, recyclable materials. The more that is recycled the less must be disposed of and the lower the cost to operate the Transfer Station and, ultimately, to the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock. The Transfer Station is open between the hours of 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. Wednesday and Saturday.

The Transfer Station is NOT for the disposal of commercial waste.

Bulky Days are those designated dates on which large and/or bulky items, such as bedding, furniture, etc., may be brought to the Transfer Station for disposal. As the cost to operate the Transfer Station is reflected in the taxes that the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock must pay, everything that helps reduce that cost is a direct savings to the taxpayers of the communities. To help minimize expenses and ensure that there is the right amount of container space for all items, it is requested that anyone who will be disposing of items at an upcoming Bulky Day contact the Transfer Station personnel as soon as possible at (802) 626-8117 between the hours of 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. on any Wednesday or Saturday and let the personnel there know, as accurately as possible, what items will be brought for disposal.
