Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law (Act 148)

“Universal Recycling (Act 148) is new Vermont solid waste legislation that focuses on recyclables and organics.” The law will provide convenient collection services across the state. Over the next seven years, mandated recyclables, leaf and yard debris, clean wood scraps, and food scraps will become illegal to throw away.

To learn more about mandated recyclables, materials banned from the landfill, timeline of the law for residents, collection services that will be required by law, and the food scrap reduction hierarchy, please view the Act 148 Summary Sheet.
