Officials in Burlington, Vt., are considering implementing a consolidated system for collecting residential trash, recyclables and food scraps.
During an upcoming meeting, city officials will discuss the findings of a feasibility study that the city says determined there are likely to be key community benefits to such a system. If the city moves forward with the system, it would enter into agreements with haulers to consolidate and collect waste, recycling and food scraps.

The city of Burlington is holding a public meeting this month on a potential consolidated system for collecting residential trash, recyclables and food scraps.
Currently the Department of Public Works collects residential recyclables and residents contract with trash haulers to collect their garbage and food scraps or they take them themselves to waste facilities. If Burlington moves forward with a consolidated system, the city would enter into agreements with haulers to consolidate trash, recycling and food scrap collections.
