Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law bans food waste from our state’s landfill starting in 2020. But, NWSWD knows that many St. Albans residents are ready to start keeping their food waste out now.
Currently, NWSWD operates a 30+ stop commercial compost pick-up route for customers like schools, restaurants, healthcare facilities, and grocery stores. This service delivers over 30 tons of food waste monthly for composting to Hudak Farm on Route 7.
Business/institutional compost pick-up is somewhat well established in Vermont. Home compost pick-up is still getting started. Seeing a need, NWSWD brought its pick-up experience to St. Albans residents in January 2017. The service is running smoothly and gaining customers all the time.
