The Southern Windsor/Windham Counties Solid Waste Management District will host a workshop specifically about composting on Thursday, May 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the town office at 37 High Street. Recycling legislation passed by the Vermont legislature affects us all when it comes to recycling food waste. Basically, that recycling involves composting. The rules are mandatory, but what exactly does that mean? And how can we as Vermont residents best comply with the new rules? Cat Buxton of Grow More, Waste Less Food Systems Consulting will lead the workshop. Buxton tell us about establishing and improving our recycling systems for organic waste. Her presentation will be about 45 minutes long with time afterwards for questions. Soil Saver composters for residential use will also be available for purchase for $30, cash or a check (a $125 value.) Residents of Cavendish and any other town are invited to attend. To sign up, call 802-674-9235; walk-ins will also be accomodated.
