The Mid-Coast Solid Waste transfer station announced that beginning Wednesday, May 20, it will start taking some additional recyclable materials on Wednesdays and Thursdays only.

Collection of recyclables was suspended temporarily in March, due to concerns about transfer station staff safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two days a week, the transfer station will again be accepting the following recyclable materials:

– Steel, tin, aluminum cans and containers

– Newsprint, magazines, paperback books (no hardcover books or binders)

– #2 colored and white plastic (laundry detergent bottles)

– #2 natural plastic (milk, juice, water jugs)

The facility has been accepting corrugated cardboard, brown paper bags and universal waste, daily, and will continue to do this.
