Recycle Like a Pro: Learn to make your efforts count, and recycle right. We’ll cover the basics of the mandated six materials that must be recycled in Vermont, plus go into detail about hard to recycle items, and discuss ways to reduce your waste in the first place.

Backyard Composting Basics: a great refresher for a new composter, or perfect for new composters. This is also a good opportunity for composting veterans who are having problems to troubleshoot and come up with new ideas.

The Town of Orange was chartered August 11, 1781.  Located in the N.W. Corner of Orange County, the town is bounded S. by Washington and Corinth; E. by Topsham, N. by Groton, Harris & Goshen Gores and Plainfield, and W. by Barre.

Orange was “largely a farming town,” when the “top population was reached in 1830 with about 1000 people and over 5000 sheep grazing on the hillsides.”  The population in the 2000 census was 951.  The tallest peaks in town are Knox Mt. and Butterfield Mt. both over 3000 feet tall.  It was assumed that both mountains were named after the early settlers living in town.
