Vermont Organics Recycling Summit

Vermont Technical College
Randolph Center, VT

Vermonters are making great strides towards 2020 and the full phase-in of the landfill ban on organics. The Vermont Organics Recycling Summit (VORS) is helping lead the way: a statewide forum to think boldly, learn, and network about transforming food waste and other organic materials into valuable products. VORS brings together technical experts, compsot producers, food waste generators, regulators, community leaders and advocated to build new networks for more resilient communities.

The one day Summit at Vermont Technical College in Randolph Center will feature a morning plenary with Keynote presentation by Nora Goldstein (Editor of BioCycle), a State of the State, and four concurrent workshops, morning and afternoon, featuring more than 20 presenters. This year’s Summit will highlight business success stories, the use of compost products for storm water management, research, and outreach models. Workshops are designed to help businesses, institutions, communities and residents meet the State’s organics diversion, food rescue, and food scrap recycling goals. See the VORS website for workshop descriptions and more information.
