VT ANR 2008 Report on Solid Waste

In January of 2008, the Vermont Agency on Natural Resources produced a report on solid waste management for the state legislature, as ordered by the 2007 budget bill. Among other things, the report addresses strengths and weaknesses in the state’s existing SWM system and proposes a strategy for the future.

From the Executive Summary:
“While progress has been made, a plateau has been reached where the waste diversion rate for
municipal solid waste has been about 30% for the past five or more years, even though the state goal for municipal solid waste diversion was 50% by 2005. Meanwhile, the amount of solid waste Vermonters generate has increased over time.”
