The District is pleased to present the 2019 Annual Report of the Addison County Solid Waste Management District. The report highlights the District’s activities over the past calendar year. It also includes a proposed budget for the 2020 calendar year and the results of an independent audit of the District’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2018.
The District continues to fulfill its mission of promoting waste reduction and maximizing diversion of waste through reuse, recycling and composting. The District serves as an important resource for its member municipalities in providing responsible planning and management of solid waste, particularly with respect to the ongoing implementation of the Universal Recycling Law. In addition to owning and operating a full-service, award-winning Transfer Station in Middlebury, the District provides its residents and businesses with high quality services and options such as hazardous waste management, waste audits and advice on waste diversion for businesses, community composting classes, and school programs on reuse, recycling and composting. The District will continue to plan for sustainable solid waste services, limit future liabilities, foster competition and minimize costs to its member municipalities.
Please take a few moments to review the 2019 Annual Report and the proposed 2020 Annual Budget. We welcome your comments and suggestions. A public hearing on the proposed budget will be held on Thursday, November 21, at 7:00 PM at the Addison County Regional Planning Commission Office at 14 Seminary Street in Middlebury.
