Lower your trash costs by separating your food scraps for composting! In Vermont, food and other organic materials from residents make up 18% of the trash. Reducing food waste and composting helps families save money, while benefiting communities, and the environment.

Transfer station food scrap collection is only available for Shaftsbury residents. Brought to you by the Town of Shaftsbury, Bennington County Solid Waste Alliance, Northeast Recycling Council, and TAM Organics in Shaftsbury.
