With the adoption of the Universal Recycling law (Act 148), Vermont has taken an ambitious step to reduce the amount of material that goes to the landfill. Universal recycling gives all Vermonters the opportunity to keep valuable materials out of the trash through services for recycling and composting. The law bans mandated recyclables from the landfill. The Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District services around 46,000 residents and 49 member towns, many of them in the Northeast Kingdom. Visit www.nekwmd.org for more information on recycling depots, separation guidelines, hazardous materials and commercial composting guidelines.
