A.B.L.E. Compost Collection
The State of Vermont has chosen to continue with the implementation of this program on July 1, 2020. The pandemic has affected the education efforts that would have taken place in the springtime to help prepare for this ban. We understand you have questions. No one at Fast Trash is going through your bagged trash. It is going to take time to work out what will be the right solution for your household.
