Vermont Act 79 Established the Vermont Municipal Collections, the most convenient (for residents) and cost-effective (per mile) in the USA. The Vermont E-Cycles Program was heralded in 2012 as one of the best in the country. This program is now available, voluntarily, at municipalities and schools in MA, NH, and RI.
THANKS TO Good Point Recycling and Our Collection Partners!
Good Point Recycling and participating manufacturers work together with Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA.net) in MA, NH and RI, and with NCER in Vermont, to provide "turn-key"recycling programs for Electronics Manufacturers. Our programs are popular, involving dozens of communities and non-profits whom we have worked with for ten years.
I'm A Manufacturer, Interested in the "Opting Vermont Independent" Plan.
Currently, the Vermont ANR obligates Original Equipment Manufacturers to use a "negative check off" system, where the OEMs are automatically obligated into the state plan if they don't "pre-opt-out" before "opting out" of the ANR State Plan. This program is closed until 2018.
I'm A Vermont Collector, choosing between the ANR Statewide Plan and "Opting Vermont Independent"
Opt Out Plans are closed to Vermont municipalities for 2016-2017.
