Vermont construction contractors and do-it-yourselfers are getting a new way to dispose of their construction debris.
Officials will inaugurate today Vermont's first mixed construction and demolition materials recycling center in Colchester.
The Myers Recycling Center will accept mixed loads of construction and demolition debris, sort out what is recyclable and reusable, and send a much smaller amount of material to landfills.
Owner Jeff Myers says that currently a lot of good material ends up in landfills. The center will reduce the amount of debris sent to landfills and create jobs.
Some of the items accepted at the center include asphalt shingles, clean lumber, concrete, and scrap metal.
