We are now working remotely and focused on keeping our normal business processes fully functional. We encourage you to communicate electronically or via phone to the greatest extent possible.  Thank you for your patience and understanding that responses may occasionally be delayed.

Vermont unanimously passed the Universal Recycling Law in 2012 to help achieve our goal to reduce waste and increase recycling and composting. Vermonters already recycle more than 70% of the mandated blue-bin recyclable materials that we generate and compost about 40% of our household food waste. 

We can do even better.

Your efforts at home and work help Vermont reach its waste reduction goals.
