Environmental Assistance

The Environmental Assistance Office is a partnership of staff focused primarily on non-regulatory programs. The Office provides guidance to permit applicants, offers environmental compliance assistance to Vermont businesses and municipalities, provides recognition programs for green businesses in Vermont, and provides assistance to municipal household hazardous waste programs. Staff assists businesses, communities, state agencies, and others to identify effective and economical ways to reduce waste at the source in order to avoid waste treatment and disposal costs and to safeguard human health and the environment.  Regional staff provide permit assistance with DEC programs and others.

This is one tool for conducting Environmental Preferable Purchasing (EPP). EPP involves procuring products or services that have a reduced impact on human health and/or the environment. Such products or services may include those which contain recycled content, minimize waste, conserve energy or water, or reduce the amount of toxic substances disposed or consumed by the user. Green purchasing puts into practice the ideals of the Waste Reduction Hierarchy (priority in this order: reduce, reuse, recycle, dispose).
