Burlington compost facility delays closure

Burlington’s nonprofit Intervale Center is keeping open for another week its composting facility near the Winooski River. The Center hopes the extra time will enable officials to reach an agreement that would turn the operation over to the Chittenden Solid Waste District.

Solid Waste: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We talk about recycling with Tom Moreau, General Manager of the Chittenden Solid Waste District. And Carolyn Grodinsky, a waste prevention specialist the Department of Environmental Conservation, helps us explore how we can reduce the amount of trash we’re generating in the first place. Also on the program, a conversation with VPR’s John Dillon about the future of commercial composting in Vermont. And we pay a visit to a store in Brattleboro that specializes in recycled building materials from ‘deconstructed’ buildings.
