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 Penobscot Energy Recovery Facility located in Orrington. The trash then is incinerated to make electricity.
The Town of Millinocket is a chartered member of the Municipal Review Committee (MRC) which is a group of 115 cities and towns that have joined together as a non-profit organization to manage their municipal solid waste (MSW) issues. Since it was founded in 1991, it has proactively addressed long-term challenges on behalf of its members keeping tipping fees reasonable and providing rebates back to the communities as well. Please check out their web site for further information.
