CVSWMD awards grants to Orange, Middlesex, Calais

The Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District (CVSWMD) has awarded the towns of Orange, Middlesex and Calais with Municipal Assistance Grants to help reduce and manage waste in their towns. CVSWMD applauds Orange, Middlesex and Calais for helping to lead the way toward zero waste in Central Vermont.
The Town of Orange received funding to hold a bulk trash day this summer. This bulk trash disposal service will be open to residents to drop off large trash items such as furniture, carpets, building demolition materials and lumber. Because these items are expensive and bulky, they are often disposed of improperly in illegal dumps or on the roadside. By holding this special collection, the town is ensuring the proper and safe collection and disposal of these items.
Middlesex is home to an illegal tire dump at an old auto garage. This illegal dump holds an estimated 1,500 tires, a hazard on many levels. CVSWMD has awarded Middlesex funding to clean up this site and therefore help improve its community.
The Town of Calais will be making improvements to the Town Recycling and Trash Depot. CVSWMD has awarded funding to erect fencing around the perimeter of the facility and add signage to inform residents of the hours of operation. These improvements will help increase functionality and raise awareness of the Moscow Woods Road Recycling and Trash Depot.
CVSWMD is pleased to help support member towns in their efforts to reduce and manage solid waste. It applauds Orange, Middlesex and Calais for their waste reduction and management efforts.
