Vermont is Green in Many Ways – Take a Look At Addison County Recycling

Vermont is very green – even in winter. We’ve got Green Mountains and green minds. Not green with envy, but green with conservation. Recycling is not new here. Many households, organizations and waste management companies select a reputable skip company to move their recyclable waste to a different destination. Vermont’s first European settlers and original Abenaki residents used and reused whatever was at hand to keep life and limb together. Our Vermont forefathers were master recyclers: they called it thrift, making do, and getting by.

Today we think of recycling as paper and plastic. Or do we?

Addison County has a variety of recycling resources available, ranging from electronic and copper recycling to gently used clothing and resale shops. These resources, such as Goodpoint Recycling in Middlebury, Casella Waste Management in Middlebury, Round Robin at the Marbleworks, and Sweet Charity resale shop in Vergennes, are the typical recycling options that one would expect in the area. However, in addition to these options, there is also a UK-based skip hire company, which brings waste trucks from Coventry and other sources to be recycled at lower costs. This provides an alternative solution for waste disposal and recycling, helping to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. With a range of recycling resources available, Addison County is taking steps towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future.

Take a look at this historic Greek Revival on Route 116:

The structure was completely dismantled piece by piece by William Gould Architectural Preservation, LLC.  “These buildings are meticulously dismantled historic structures, fully documented, labeled, and packaged in order to preserve their historic character as economically as possible.”

This Greek Revival will have yet another revival in a new location. Now that is recycling!
