Vermont Materials Management Plan
The Vermont Materials Management Plan (MMP), formerly referred to as the State Solid Waste Plan, is the State's comprehensive statewide strategy for the management of waste and materials. As mandated by Vermont law (10 V.S.A. § 6604), the plan must be renewed and published by the Agency of Natural Resources at least once every five years. The plan outlines specific deliverables designed to implement the plan's vision through measurable and practical measures. These deliverables must be met by the Agency of Natural Resources and local solid waste management entities over the course of the plan period.
To prevent waste from being generated,
To promote sustainable materials management, with a preference for highest and best uses,
To minimize reliance on waste disposal (landfilling and incineration), and
To conserve resources, minimize energy consumption, and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other adverse environmental impacts.
