PLASTIC BAGS ARE NOT EASY TO RECYCLE!!

August 1, 2018

ecomaine does NOT accept plastic bags or plastic film of any kind even if the bag/film has the recycling symbol on it. Therefore, it is not accepted in any of the Recycling Containers in Town or at the Transfer Station.
Please either put the plastic bags/film in your trash or take them to a retailer that collects this material. The bags/film must be clean and dry to be recycled. Retailers who collect this material typically have a collection container in the front of the store (Bow Street Market, Hannaford, Target etc.)
Styrofoam is also NOT recyclable at ecomaine and must be disposed of in the trash. Feel free to contact the Transfer Station if you have any questions 865-3740.
