Primary Election Warning

 

This is a reminder that on July 1, 2020, Vermont state law:

  • bans disposal of food scraps in the trash or landfills,
  • requires trash haulers to offer food scrap collection services to non-residential customers and apartments with 4 units or more, unless another hauler is willing to provide that service. Food scrap collection is also currently required by law for bag drop haulers.

Recycle Right! in the NEKWMD!
