All items listed belong in a blue recycling bin, and are mandatory recyclables. Items placed in the blue bin must be rinsed and clean, and follow the rule of twos.

SPECIAL WASTE

Special Recycling Includes items that don’t belong in the recycling bin, but that can be recycled elsewhere.

FOOD SCRAPS & ORGANIC MATERIALS

Food Scraps and Organic Materials include items that will naturally break down in the proper environment and may be banned from the landfill in Vermont.

TRASH

Trash includes items that are only managed by landfill disposal in Vermont.

  • EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE (STYROFOAM)
  • TRADITIONAL KITTY LITTER
  • PHOTOGRAPHS
  • CARTONS AND ASEPTIC CONTAINERS
  • See LRSWMD Facilities. It is illegal to burn trash in the State of Vermont. It is also illegal to bury trash on your own property, or dump or deposit it anywhere other than a certified disposal facility. Mandated recyclables are not trash and should be properly handled as recyclable materials.
