As of July 1, 2020, all food scraps and other organics are banned from the landfill, including those from businesses.
Businesses are NOT required to compost on-site, but still need to separate their food scraps for haulers to pickup, donate, and/or educate their staff members!
- Separate your food waste into collection carts/dumpsters that haulers can pick up and bring to composting facilities, farms & digesters. Find a hauler in your area! Or think of installing an in-vessel compost tumbler, check out this webinar to learn more.
- Donate edible food to food shelves, or to farms. Learn more about food donation here from VT DEC.
- Educate your staff on the importance of composting, but also reducing waste at the source. Find our page “Reducing Waste at the Source” for tips on educating your staff.
