Chittenden residents have been recycling for many years, and each year the volume of waste increases that gets recycled. Each pound that is recycled is one less pond that the town does not have to pay a premium price to dispose of. There is a hauling fee and processing fee for recyclables. These fees are much less than what would be paid if they were taken to a landfill or incinerator.
Canussa – Hersmann, located in St. Albans, Vermont, picks up all the paper products, with the exception of boxboard.
