Story Behind the Curve

On the whole, Vermont generated more waste in 2018, continuing a two year trend of increasing waste production.  But, from this produced waste, Vermonter's diverted (recycled, composted etc.) a higher tonnage of recyclables than ever before.  Although disposal rates increased for the second year in a row, it is notable that this years increase was approximately half of that that occurred in 2017, so the rate of change is slowing.
