How to Compost in the Mad River Valley
As per Vermont's Universal Recycling Law (Act 148), which has been in effect since July 1st 2020, food scraps are no longer allowed to be disposed of in trash or landfills and all Vermont residents will need to compost.
For those who have never composted before, this may seem difficult or confusing, but it is much easier than it seems!
There are three main ways to deal with food scraps: Home compost, Pick-Up services, and Drop-Off stations. Different ways work for different people. For example, home composting works well for avid gardeners who need fertile and rich soil to help their plants.
