Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law
Vermont’s new solid waste legislation, Act 148, focuses on recyclables and organics. It will provide convenience and choices for solid waste generators, including individuals, and will lead to more consistent services throughout the state. To learn more about this law, click here. You can also look at and/or download the new universal recycling symbols for recycling, food, and trash here.
Vermont’s Paint Stewardship Law
Vermont will begin its new Paint Stewardship Law in May 2014. The law will require the paint industry to be responsible for collecting and managing leftover architectural paint in Vermont, reducing the role of government and taxpayers. The cost of the program will be paid by manufacturers who sell paint in the state. A fee will be included in the price of paint solid in Vermont. The program will be administered by PaintCare, a non-profit organization.
*The Town of Hartford Transfer/Recycling Center is now a PaintCare Collection site. They will be receiving acceptable paint products on Saturdays and on a scheduled appointment basis during the week. Please call our office or the Hartford Recycling Center if you have any questions.
Other collection sites in the area include Welch’s True Value Hardware in Woodstock and Royalton, Bibens Ace Hardware and Sherwin-Williams in Springfield as well as the Bethel-Royalton Transfer Station.
