COMMUNITY EVENTS — DISPOSAL AID

CONTACT: Carl Diethelm, Outreach Coordinator- carld@rcswd.com, (802) 775-7209

In order to comply with the Act 148 Universal Recycling Law, there are a few things you must do before hosting your event. Give us a call, or read on below to find out how we can help!

Recycle

  • Recyclables were banned from the landfill in 2015 so you must sort them out from the trash
  • Keep a blue bin (or any bin) next to the trash and CLEARLY label it ‘Recycling”
  • The person or organization who puts on the event is responsible for recycling
  • Click here for signage and here to receive more information on recyclables

 

Food Waste

  • Food scraps will not be banned from the landfills until 2020, but it is still a good idea to have a bin at an event for food scraps if you have a reliable source to bring them to
  • For bigger events, create a three bin system and CLEARLY label the bucket ‘Food Scraps’
  • For smaller events, simply put a bucket next to the trash and recycling with the label ‘Food Scraps’
  • The person or organization who puts on the event is responsible for food scraps
  • Click here for signage and here for more information
