the date—Saturday, April 25th at the South Hero Community Library.
The South Hero Community Library
and Northwest Vt. Solid Waste Management District present:
Intro to Composting for Kids,
10:00am-11:00am: Children grades K-6 learn the basics about waste reduction and
composting. Learn about where our trash goes, the impact of trash on our
environment, and how kids can help by composting.
Introduction to Home Composting,
11:15am-12:30pm: Turn your yard and food waste into compost and learn how
Vermont’s new Universal Recycling Law helps residents and businesses better
manage their waste's impact on our state. Learn what composting is, why it's
important, how it works, and the various types of composting in order to help
you determine which is best suited to your individual needs.
Both classes are free and will be
taught by Aaron Shepard of NWSWD and UVM Extension Master Composter.
For questions please contact

We sell inexpensive composters at
our drop-off locations. Contact us for more info!
2015 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Schedule / Spring Newsletter
Here's a downloadable PDF
of the NWSWD Spring Newsletter. (Sorry, but it's not a copy that

Paper copies are available at all NWSWD Drop-Off sites.
Attention Bakersfield Drop-Off Site Users:
