GREEN UP DAY 2017 — 47 Years of Tradition!
THANK YOU CORINTH! 

More than 25 families collected two-thirds of a ton of roadside trash and 2 tons of tires for Green Up 2017! This does not even include the trash collected before and after the actual weekend of Green Up Day or the recyclables and redeemable bottles many of you also contributed that didn’t make it into our statistics. Corinth has a rich tradition of residents who make the effort to green up their town’s roadsides after the long winter. Thank you all for not only making our community cleaner for us, but also safer for so many creatures who do not make the trash, but may end up harmed by it.


 

RETURNABLE BOTTLES

The Corinth Conservation Commission oversees this venture and all revenues collected from returnables goes to support the CCC. Leave your returnables in the trash baskets provided (under the large notice board). If the bins are full, please leave neatly in bags. Ensure that your bottles have the VT deposit label. Bottles with NH deposit labels are NOT accepted; most wine and liquor bottles are NOT returnable…check the labels — the CCC volunteers will greatly appreciate it!

 

COMPOST

Cookeville Composting has generously offered its services to collect your kitchen and garden waste (meat and bones are okay, too). Their small bin is located to the right after you enter the transfer station.

 

METAL RECYCLING

Heave your metal items into the large dumpsters to the left of the Casella rubbish truck; no charge. Spring, summer and fall only.

 

MATTRESS DISPOSAL

Information you might find useful:

In the U.S., over 15 million mattresses are disposed of annually and far too many of them end up in landfills or even just on sidewalks since not all of us know what options exist when it comes to mattress disposal. My team at Tuck created a guide to help combat this problem which I think your residents would benefit greatly from. We cover everything from how to donate a mattress as well as mattress recycling and more. More info here: www.tuck.com/mattress-disposal
