Please keep lumber, trash, and metal out of the brush pile. It is a free service. Let’s keep it that way.
The Millinocket Transfer Site is located on outer Medway Road just beyond the Airport. Trash Permits are required and are being issued at the Millinocket Town Office for Millinocket Residents and Penobscot & Piscataquis County Unorganized Areas which are good for 1 year. The permit fee is $20.00 for Town and $10.00 for unorganized townships. The Millinocket Transfer Site has compactors that compress the trash stream into 115 cubic yard trailers which are transported by the Town to the new trash facility that just started up called Coastal Resources of Maine located in Hampden Maine. They have a web site for further information on their plant. There the entire trash stream along with any recycled content items that may be in the trash stream are sorted such as tin cans, cardboard, paper, and plastics that can be re-used into a marketable product. Before this facility came on line, our trash stream was incinerated to make electricity. So this system is completely a new generation of recycling system.. There are also piles in the yard for scrap wood, metals, tires, shingles, and a separate area for Composting Yard Waste. All of these items are recycled as well.
– Thank You.
