The Millinocket Transfer Site is located on outer Medway Road just beyond the Airport. Trash Permits are required and as of August 31st 2015 are now being issued at the Millinocket Town Office for Millinocket Residents and Penobscot/Piscataquis County Areas which are good for 1 year. The permit fee is $20.00 for Town and $10.00 for unorganized townships. The Facility has compactors that compress the trash stream into 115 cubic yard trailers which are transported to the Penobscot Energy Recovery Plant In Orrington Maine. There the trash is used for making electricity, and is not buried at the Landfill. Millinocket also has a Recycling Facility which collects over 300 tons/year of clean recycle products.
Cardboard, Paperboard/Mixed Paper, Newspapers, Magazines, Tin Cans, Sorted Office Paper, and High Density Plastic Containers are baled and loaded onto trucks to be further processed and be re-used. There are also stations for scrap wood, metals, tires, shingles, and a separate area for Composting Yard Waste. All of these items are recycled as well.
“The Town of Millinocket appreciates the publics help, and thanks those who have made a difference by recycling.” Those who don’t recycle we need your help to increase the amount of material we don’t just throw away in the compactors. If everyone just recycles 5 pounds of items per week that we can re-use, the town would reduce our cost to haul trash away, and at the same time make more revenue, which would lower operating costs, and reduce taxes. If we want to keep this service free, and not charge per bag, we need to all recycle.” – Thank You.
