Technical Assistance and Training Available to Vermont’s Composters

In support of Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) Department of Environmental Conservation offers training and technical assistance to food scrap composters. The 2018 Vermont Compost Operator Certification Training will be held this fall. Participants in this day-long workshop will receive a Compost Operator Certificate, which meets the requirements of ANR for small, medium, and large compost facility site operators. Current and future compost site operators will be certified to manage composting facilities handling food scraps or mortalities in Vermont. All interested parties are encouraged to register. There are limited spots, so food scrap compost site operators in Vermont will be given priority. Further workshop and registration details will be announced in August. In addition to the training, consulting services are available to eligible food scrap composters on an ongoing basis.
