Solid Waste Implementation Plan

The Windham Solid Waste Management District has adopted a new Solid Waste Implemenation Plan (SWIP), to comply with Vermont's Materials Management Plan (MMP).  The basis of the MMP is:

  • 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.
