Moretown landfill won’t be recertified

MORETOWN — The state released a letter to the management of the Moretown landfill Friday morning, indicating it will not recertify the landfill’s operating certificate.

The draft decision affects Cell 2 and 3, not the Cell 4 expansion, but the state has noted the expansion shares similar issues.

The state intends to open a 30‐day public comment period beginning today. Comments should be
focused on whether the facility’s design and operations are sufficient to prevent nuisance odor conditions. The comment period will end on Jan. 21.

All comments should be sent electronically to Ben Gauthier at The state will take 45 days to consider all public comments and issue its final decision on March 8.

Read the letter here. Check later today and the Saturday editions of The Times Argus and Rutland Herald for more details.
