Tougher Recycling Law to Take Effect July 1 in Vermont

Starting July 1, recyclables such as metal, glass, certain plastics, and paper will be banned from Vermont landfills as part of a goal of recycling and composting more solid waste by 2020.

For trash haulers that do not already collect recyclables, that means a change.

‘‘The idea behind the law is to make it equally convenient for Vermonters to recycle as it is to throw something away,’’ said Deborah Markowitz, secretary of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.
