By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The future of the Vergennes recycling and trash drop-off center is in doubt after city officials learned this past Tuesday that Casella Inc. in July would increase by 47 percent the cost of processing recycling brought to the center.

That increase, due to larger market forces, would boost the annual cost of the Canal Street center — an expense that is shared by the surrounding towns of Ferrisburgh, Panton, Waltham and Addison — by about $34,600 to roughly $107,600, according to City Manager Mel Hawley.

Gebo Brian Verg Mem Day speaker.jpg

VERGENNES — Two of the men at the center of the Vergennes Memorial Day parade are both U.S. Navy veterans, but neither served on what most people think of as typical ships.
