Brattleboro, VT Seeks Funds to Save Recycling Program


Brattleboro, VT – The town of Brattleboro, VT., is trying to figure out a way to continue funding a recycling program. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley has more...

The town's two recycling coordinators opened a compost site and helped to increase Brattleboro's recycling rate by about 10 percent in their first year on the job.
