Horrendous stench. That’s how neighbors of the Moretown
landfill describe the odor that has been wafting onto their property.
Officials at the Agency of Natural Resources have given the landfill owners an
ultimatum: clean up, or shut down.

The Moretown site is one of only two landfills in the state.
Justin Johnson, the Deputy Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources, and
Tony Klein, chair of the House Natural Resources Committee, discuss how the
state deals with its solid waste, and what will happen to the Moretown

Post your questions or comments about the solid waste disposal
or email them to vermontedition@vpr.net.

Also, the holidays can be hard for people who are in prison. At the
Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility in South Burlington a few
laughs can help ease the tension. We listen in on a comedy class with
standup comedian Josie Leavitt that teaches writing and coping skills to
incarcerated women.

And, we’ll hear a profile of Burlington Songwriter Maryse
Smith and her band.
