Written comments will be accepted by email or postal mail (137 Barre St., Montpelier VT 05602) until April 30. The hearing will be held Wed., April 29 at 6:00 p.m. at the Additional Recyclables Collection Center at 540 North Main Street in Barre.
Don't be daunted by cold weather composting. Material will freeze and pile up so we suggest having two or three bins if you have the space. After temperatures rise in the spring, the accumulated food scraps from the winter will disappear. Call us for troubleshooting at 802-229-9383 x.102. Also, in a few years, Vermont's new Universal Recycling law (Act 148) will ban organics such as food scraps and leaf & yard waste from the landfill. Are you ready? Check out our free bin plans, guides & tips, plus the compost equipment that we sell at cost to CVSWMD residents. Got questions? Call or email us.

Thanks to the new Paint take-back recycling bill that went into effect this spring, leftover paint is now being handled for free by the paint industry, saving taxpayer dollars and handling that material responsibly. CVSWMD held three paint collections throughout the district this year, and we also collect paint year round at our Additional Recyclables Collection Center (ARCC) at 540 North Main Street in Barre.
