Vermont is down to a single operating landfill after the one operating in Moretown closed over the weekend. The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources this month ordered the Moretown landfill to close, citing odor problems and ground-water pollution. The landfill had until mid-April to close, but it shut down on Saturday. WPTZ-TV reported that landfill officials said they closed earlier than required to prepare an appeal of the agency’s decision to the state’s environmental court. Vermont now has only one landfill left used for trash disposal, in the northern Vermont town of Coventry. (AP)
