Vermont Organics Recycling Summit (VORS)

Vermonters are making great strides towards 2020 and the full phase-in of the landfill ban on organics. The Vermont Organics Recycling Summit is helping lead the way: a statewide forum to think boldly, learn, and network about transforming food waste and other organic materials into valuable products.

The Summit will highlight business success stories, the use of compost products for storm water management, research, and outreach models. Workshops are designed to help businesses, institutions, communities and residents meet the State’s organics diversion, food rescue, and food scrap recycling goals. The morning plenary features Keynote presentation by Nora Goldstein, Editor of BioCycle, and a State of the State by Agency of Natural Resources staff.
