Whiteface has zero sort recycling

WILMINGTON - Skiers and riders at Whiteface Mountain can dump their recyclables into the same bin. Separating out glass from plastic from paper recyclables is now a thing of the past as the Olympic mountain has switched over to "zero-sort" recycling. Partnering with Casella Waste Systems, the "zero-sort" recycling system allows people to put all of the recyclables together, in a single bin, no more sorting.

Ninety-six gallon wheeled recycling bins will be placed throughout the mountain's base lodge and from there, the recyclable material will be transported the Casella's Chittenden Solid Waste District Materials Recovery Facility, in Burlington, Vt., and processed through automated sorting equipment.
