Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant for: The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission is recommending one sub grant focused on Material Conservation for Department of Energy (DOE) approval. The Chittenden Solid Waste District (CSWD) is proposing an expansion to their current recycling program to include a ?Special Waste Recycling? component which will focus on construction waste. The waste will specifically be drywall scrap and plastic film recycling programs for the residents and businesses of Chittenden County. CSWD is a union municipal district and is responsible for the management of solid waste generated within Chittenden County. This proposal will expand the already existing pavement at the Drop-Off Center and Special Waste Facility to construct a pole barn with three bays for storage of the waste. Construction of a storage facility and installation of a baler will complete Phase I of CSWD's plan to significantly expand its diversion of "hard to recycle" or special wastes.
