Information and Resources
The Solid Waste Program is developing resources for each of the stakeholder groups affected by the Universal Recycling law. Information and resources are being created for: Residents, Haulers, Local Government (towns, municipalities, solid waste management districts), Businesses & Institutions, Schools, and Solid Waste Facilities. As the materials are finalized, they will be posted on individual stakeholder pages. Select the image below to access stakeholder-specific information and resources.

Vermont’s Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) is proud to unveil the newly developed standardized symbols for recycling, food scraps, and trash. These symbols were created as tools to help implement Vermont’s Universal Recycling law (Act 148) which will unify recycling and composting efforts across Vermont. The symbols were conceived by an Act 148 work group comprised of solid waste management entities, non-profit organizations, businesses, and state agencies. ANR Secretary Markowitz unveiled the symbols with the assistance of Main Street Middle School students at a press event on November 13th. See the new symbols here.
