How to Recycle Almost Everything

Sustainable Woodstock’s volunteers work to improve recycling practices in our community. We helped to prepare homeowners and businesses for the implementation of Vermont’s universal recycling law, Act 148.

Sustainable Woodstock helped develop a recycling policy for community events, facilitated the installation of recycling bins throughout the Village, and provides recycling services at public events, including the Road to the Pogue, Covered Bridges Half Marathon and the Trek to Taste. We typically divert 90+% of trash to recycling and compost at those events.

Each year we hold an electronics recycling drop-off event at Union Arena. In 2020 we collected 8,142 pounds of discarded computers, televisions, batteries, lightbulbs and other electronic components from area homeowners and businesses. We also shredded two tons of sensitive documents.

Sustainable Woodstock urges everyone to recycle and compost as many materials as possible. This saves valuable landfill space and energy, and helps make the transition from a wasteful, consumer-oriented lifestyle to one that is more sustainably in balance with the ecological capacity of the planet.

Besides, Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, Act 148, requires residents and businesses to improve recycling practices over time. Click here to learn about updates and current requirements of Act 148.
