COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) Vermont construction contractors and do-it-yourselfers are going to be getting a new way to dispose of their construction debris.

On Oct. 30 officials inaugurated 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 said that currently much good material ends up in landfills. The center will reduce the amount of debris sent to landfills and create jobs.

Some of the items that will be accepted at the center include asphalt shingles, clean lumber, concrete, and scrap metal.
