Vermont’s only landfill is filling up

Vermont’s only landfill is filling up. The Coventry landfill only has about 20 years of capacity left. So the state has a goal of cutting 50% of its waste out of the waste stream. But progress on that goal is slow moving according to a new state report.

The report says Vermont is at about 36%,”. That despite a very good recycling rate of about 72%.

The report says the best way to reduce waste is to purchase fewer disposable products.
