Don’t Burn VT

Home » Don’t Burn VT


Trash burning is illegal in Vermont, yet many still do it. Today’s trash contains plastics, metals and other synthetic materials, which emit toxic fumes and harmful quantities of dioxins when burned. Find Out More Here.
Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals known to cause cancer, and other illnesses. The effects of trash burning and the dioxins released by it are far-reaching. It’s not just one individual’s health and property that are affected. We all are affected. Vermont’s Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) has launched a one-year public education effort called, “Don’t Burn Vermont,” to educate Vermonters about the effects of trash burning.
