CSWD Solid Waste Implementation Plan
To comply with Vermont statute, CSWD must adopt a Solid Waste Implementation Plan (SWIP) that conforms to the Vermont Materials Management Plan (MMP). The SWIP provides information on how various waste streams are managed in Chittenden County, how members are and will be educated on waste prevention and proper disposal, and how CSWD will meet the specific performance standards in the MMP. It also includes criteria for review of and including solid waste facilities in the SWIP.
CSWD’s draft 2020 SWIP is now moving through the approval process.
Visit the SWIP page for details on the State and public review process, to read the draft SWIP, and to submit your comments.
