The Vermont Organics Recycling Summit (VORS) will be held as a webinar series from Monday August 3rd through Thursday, August 6th, 2020.

VORS has helped advance organics and food scrap diversion in Vermont for over a decade. VORS provides a statewide forum to think boldly, learn, and network about transforming food waste and other organic materials into valuable products.

We have reached 2020, and the ban on landfilling organics that Vermonters have been gearing up for recently came into effect this July! To help promote “2020 and Beyond”, this year’s Summit will include sessions on the use of compost products for storm water management, organics hauling, research, and outreach models to help communities and residents meet the State’s organics diversion, food rescue, and food scrap recycling goals.
