Compost Help Available
It's gardening season! That means it time to check out your backyard compost - or start composting for the first time ever. Maybe you want a second or third bin to keep your "black gold" working while you garden over the summer. We can help.
CVSWMD offers Soil Saver compost bins and Green Cones for sale at cost, and we have staff available to help with troubleshooting.
In a few years, Vermont's 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 802-229-9383 x102, or email us.

What's New with Paint?
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.
Visit the PaintCare website to find a complete list of locations and accepted and not accepted products.
