Why We Recycle:
Recycling is a simple and effective way to preserve natural resources and reduce global energy demands.
It’s also the law. In 2012 the Vermont Legislature passed Act 148, a recycling law aimed at keeping recyclable materials out of the landfills.
What Can We Recycle At Coventry:
The most commonly recycled materials, and those mandated by law, are known as the “Statewide Six”: Paper, Aluminum, Cardboard, Steel, Glass & Hard Plastics. All of these items can be co-mingled in the bins located by the Swap Shop and they are then sorted at a solid waste facility in Williston, VT. Leaves and yard debris are also required to be recycled, and these items can be deposited in the mulch pile by the gardens.
Branches & limbs should be placed in the pile provided.
