State helps display recycling rules on truck
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District has received a grant of $3,150 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. This grant will help pay for the cost of putting recycling and composting messages on the outside of the district’s box truck.
The messages will be in support of Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law — Act 148.
The Vermont Legislature unanimously passed the Universal Recycling Law in 2012. The law effectively bans disposal of three major types of waste materials commonly found in trash. It also seeks to reduce waste and increase recycling and composting statewide through disposal bans on mandated recyclables, leaf and yard debris, clean wood and food scraps.
With concerns over wasting valuable natural resources and the impact of waste on global climate change, the stage is set to boost recycling and launch statewide composting awareness, ACSWMD officials said. The Addison County trash district will work closely with the state to develop an appropriate design that supports the district’s work to raise public awareness and educate the public on the importance of recycling and composting.
Keep an eye out for the new design on roads in Addison County and beyond, beginning this fall.
