Introducing New Program at WSWMD
"Let's shrink our waste together!"
Are you looking for an opportunity to give-back to your community while being environmentally friendly and developing educational skills?
This spring, the WSWMD will be launching a brand-new volunteer program! The "Waste Watchers" is a group of dedicated volunteers seeking to educate members of their communities about proper disposal methods and answer the aged old question "Which bin does this go into?" While
managing collection stations they will interact with the public to talk about a variety of subjects surrounding the idea of "waste."
Universal Recycling Law Survey
The Windham Solid Waste Management District (WSWMD) represents 20 towns in Windham and Bennington Counties and is dedicated to encourage residents, businesses and institutions to recycle, reuse and reduce materials that would otherwise be disposed of in the landfill. To help improve educational efforts it is important to get your feedback on Vermont's new Universal Recycling Law (Act 148). Please participate in the survey by visting WSWMD Universal Recycling Law Survey.
Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law (Act 148)
“Universal Recycling (Act 148) is new Vermont solid waste legislation that focuses on recyclables and organics.” The law will provide convenient collection services across the state. Over the next seven years, mandated recyclables, leaf and yard debris, clean wood scraps, and food scraps will become illegal to throw away.
To learn more about mandated recyclables, materials banned from the landfill, timeline of the law for residents, collection services that will be required by law, and the food scrap reduction hierarchy, please view the Act 148 Summary Sheet.
For more information on the law please visit Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law.
