A local waste hauler is worried that new regulations on trash and recycling will be difficult and expensive to follow.
"I don't want to come off as negative on this law," said Trevor Mance, owner of TAM Waste Management in Shaftsbury. "There's positive effects of it — it just means there's going to be a price increase, it's going to cost more money."
Vermont's Universal Recycling Law was passed unanimously by the legislature in 2012. Not all of it goes into effect at once, with most elements being phased in each year until 2020.
