Get rid of your unwanted items at dumps and landfills in Maine

In 2019, Maine generated 1.9 million tonnes of waste through landfills. That may seem like a lot for the small state, but it’s lower than the per capita average of waste generated per person across the state. Maine also has one of the highest rates of recycling, sitting around 35%. But despite many organisations and counties fighting against landfills, there is still a real need for them. That’s good news for you, as it means there’s likely a dump or landfill close by ready to take the trash off your hands.

You’ll find the sites in areas such as Pembroke, Warren, Georgetown, Winterport, Freeport, Rockport, South Portland, Berwick, and many more areas.

Some of the common types of items accepted at these landfills include construction rubble, scrap metals, yard waste, old furniture, some types of electronics, white goods, car parts like tires, and others. If you’re thinking of dumping potentially hazardous waste, make sure the facility is able to process it safely as it can cause trouble for the local environment.

Like many of the dumps in Florida, the vast majority of dumps in Maine are owned and managed by the local counties. This is great for local residents as fees for dumping come down dramatically for anyone living in the county.

On the other hand, there are some dumps that are privately owned by for-profit organizations. This is a similar case in Texas where many of the dumps are also privately owned. Fees at these locations tend to be higher than municipal dumps as they’re for-profit businesses.

Normal waste like yard waste, household goods, electronics, car parts, and construction materials are the most commonly accepted items. Toxic and potentially hazardous materials can only be processed at certain locations, so call ahead to confirm.

Fees vary depending on if you’re a local resident of the county where the dump is located, what kind of materials you’re dumping, and how much you’ve got. Check their website or give them a call for accurate pricing.
