The Southern Windsor/Windham Counties Solid Waste Management District in conjunction with the Cavendish Energy Committee and the Town of Cavendish will host a workshop specifically about composting. Masks and physical distancing will be mandatory.

Ham Gillett of the Southern Windsor/Windham Counties Solid Waste Management District will address many of the aspects of Vermont Act 148, which mandates recycling, including the composting of food waste.  The presentation will last about 45 minutes with time afterward for questions.

All attendees will be eligible to win the door prize of a new Soil Saver composter and may order composters for residential use. These bins retail for close to $90 each, but workshop attendees can purchase one them for $50. Please bring exact change or a check (no credit cards). Composters are on order and most likely will not be available in time for the presentation. When they arrive, they will be available at the Cavendish transfer station for pick up. 

Composting is great for the garden, it’s great for the yard, and it’s now the law. To sign up for the workshop, or for more information email If you’d like to purchase a composter but not attend the workshop please let us know. Although sign-up is encouraged, walk-ins will be welcomed.
