The Recycling Center is closed on New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If any of these holidays falls on a Monday, the area will be open the following day from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Recycling Center is located on Dennison Drive, off Spurwink Avenue.

Permits can be obtained at the Recycling Center office, upon providing proof of residence.

The town does not offer curbside collection of solid waste. Residents can utilize the Recycling Center for disposal of household refuse, or elect to contract with a private refuse hauler for pick-up. Non-recyclable rubbish deposited in the hopper at the Recycling Center is transferred to the ecomaine trash-to-energy facility in Portland for incineration.

In addition, the center has containers for recyclables, waste oil, demolition material, brush and leaves and cardboard. Users must place items in their designated locations as directed by the attendant.

Certain items require a disposal fee. Please call the Recycling Center or our office with questions on fees and acceptable waste. See our Recycling Center FAQ.

The Recycling Center is also the home of our Swap Shop and Bottle Donation Shed, and compost is available for purchase.
