CSWD partners with local and state organizations to offer a variety of community programs that have an end goal of saving energy, reducing waste and minimizing the carbon footprint of a community–including the town offices.
To make it easy for municipalities to comply with VT ACT 148: Universal Recycling Law, and CSWD’s Solid Waste Management Ordinance, CSWD offers suggested language which can be added to town/village/city permit applications for special events.
