MRF BOND FACTS

Nearly 30 years ago, CSWD built Vermont’s first Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where “blue-bin” recyclables are sorted to be marketed and made into new products. This outdated MRF has us stuck in the 20th century, limiting what Vermonters can recycle and falling behind the demands of modern packaging. CSWD is proposing to build a new, more efficient and effective MRF that will provide extensive environmental benefits and affordable, in-state processing for Vermonters’ recycling for decades to come.

 

This new MRF will:

  • Enable Vermonters to keep more recyclables out of the landfill
  • Replace repetitive, hand-sorting jobs with more diverse, skilled jobs in a cleaner, brighter, and better designed facility for Vermont workers.
  • Feature 21st-century technology, capacity, and flexibility to better handle the enormous growth in the volume and diversity of products and packaging.

At the November General Election, CSWD will be asking voters to approve a bond of $22 million for this new MRF. This bond will not increase taxes. CSWD will pay back the loan over 25 years from the MRF’s operational revenue. The MRF Bond ballot will be available after  September 1st. We will post a link here when the ballot is ready.
