This program comprised the collection of organics from businesses, schools and residents for composting. It was established in 1984 and had provided recycling, composting and management programs for 22 rural communities. The state's initial goal was to divert 50 percent of its waste from landfills by 2005 and it started collecting organics in April 2004 after the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation gave $21,055 grant in June 2003.
