New Program Helps Local Businesses Recycle

New Program Helps Local Businesses Recycle Stowe Vermont

posted at 3:00 pm Thu Nov 17th, 2016 by (WherezIt_Staff)

"I just got back from vacation, and I was appalled at the lack of recycling in other parts of the country," Barbara Laster, co-owner of Stowe's Hob Knob Inn, said after a recent trip.

Vermont has long been a leader on waste prevention and recycling, but many states neither require nor encourage those things.

Now Vermont is taking the next step with even stricter recycling requirements.

Act 148, Vermont's Universal Recycling Law, has some pretty lofty goals. The 2012 law, which was phased in, aims to limit the amount of waste going into landfills by banning items such as "blue bin recyclables," leaf and yard debris, and food scraps. The ban on trashing blue bin recyclables - those items Vermonters traditionally see as recyclable - took effect July 1, 2015. Leaves and yard debris followed suit this year. By 2020, food scraps will join the list of items no longer allowed in landfills.
