Waste Management & Recycling Program
Our Three Fold Mission
The Maine Legislature has set a goal for Maine to achieve 50% recycling of its municipal solid waste.
A statewide recycling rate of 38.7% was achieved in 2009, over 687,000 tons of recyclables did not end up in a landfill!
This recycling effort was achieved thanks to the combined efforts of Maine residents, municipalities and businesses.
Maine continues to rank highly among other states in overall recycling efforts.
