We’re here to provide you support with the management and reduction of your solid waste.

As of July 1, 2020, businesses are required to comply with the Single-Use Products Law and the Food Scrap Ban. These laws were passed to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and reduce the production of greenhouse gases attributed to global warming. Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law (Act 148) requires all Vermonters to recycle and divert their food scraps.

The Alliance assists businesses in a number of ways:

  • Education for compliance with Vermont’s solid waste laws
  • Onsite consultations to optimize waste management practices
  • Staff training and presentations
  • Technical assistance locating special recycling and hazardous waste disposal sources
  • Food scrap management education and assistance with setup
  • Illustrated bin signs

We also make visits to businesses throughout the year to learn about their solid waste management practices and help them comply with the laws. If we visit YOU, we’re there to provide information about Vermont’s solid waste laws, available recycling programs, and maybe even save you some money by helping you optimize your solid waste management program.

Need help managing hazardous waste including locating take-back programs or determining if you are a Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG)?
