In May, Vermont’s legislature passed Act 148, a measure aimed at reducing the amount of solid waste the state sends to landfills while maximizing recycling and composting.  This sweeping overhaul contains several provisions including disposal bans on mandated recyclables, yard waste and food residuals, the implementation of parallel recycling and composting programs statewide, and adoption of a Pay-As-You-Throw system.   Additionally, the Agency of Natural Resources is required to conduct an “evaluation of the cost/benefit of expansion of the beverage deposit redemption program and single-stream recycling” with a report and recommendations to be delivered to the legislature by January 2013.

CRI President Susan V. Collins will lead a panel of waste and recycling experts to discuss the new law's merits and opportunities, anticipated logistical challenges, and potential impacts to Vermont's bottle bill.
