State debuts Web-based recycling map

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The state of Vermont has released its Web-based recycling map that connects residents, businesses, and institutions with collection services and food rescue agencies, haulers and composters with food scraps.

Vermont's Universal Recycling law bans all food scraps from landfills by July 1, 2020. Larger generators of food scraps need to begin diverting them sooner if a certified compost center is located within 20 miles.

Recyclable such as metal, glass, plastics and paper are banned from the landfill beginning July 1, 2015.

The map allows users to find facilities that accept various materials for food rescue, recycling, composting, and disposal, such as food shelves, transfer stations and compost facilities. It also shows businesses that generate food scraps and places that can provide composting and recycling assistance.
