Vermont Organics Recycling Summit

Vermont Technical College
Randolph Center, VT

The Vermont Organics Recycling Summit (VORS) has helped move Vermont forward for over a decade. VORS provides a statewide forum to think boldly, learn, and network about transforming food waste and other organic materials into valuable products.

Vermonters are gearing up for 2020, when the ban on landfilling organics comes into effect. This year’s Summit will include sessions on the use of compost products for storm water management, organics hauling, research, climate change, and outreach models to help communities and residents meet the State’s organics diversion, food rescue, and food scrap recycling goals.

The one-day Summit at Vermont Technical College in Randolph will feature a morning plenary with Frank Franciosi as Keynote speaker, a State of the State by Josh Kelly, ANR/DEC’s Materials Management Section Chief, four concurrent morning and afternoon workshops, and a special side event on Community Composting BMPs.

See the VORS website for workshop descriptions and more information.
