Tackling Food Waste: Basics for Businesses

Does your organization have a plan for separating food waste from the trash? Starting July 1, 2020, state law bans all food scraps—in any amount—from the trash in Vermont. The law applies to everyone, including businesses and offices. Whether you’re the office sustainability champion or you’re totally daunted by the idea of collecting food scraps, this workshop is for you! In this session, you will learn about your organization’s responsibilities and options under Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, get tips for greener waste strategies, and have your questions answered. Coffee and refreshments will be provided, and attendees will receive signs, stickers, and a free food scrap bucket!
