Household Waste and Recyclables

The Town of Otisfield is now a "single sort" recycling center. We have partnered with ecomaine of Portland. Disposal of household waste is accepted and should be put into the hopper. Recyclables include newspapers, brown bags, cardboard (please break it down first), glass, metal cans, all plastics, yogurt containers, magazines, paper, etc. and should be put into our new recycling compactor. All plastic bags, i.e. from Hannaford or Walmart are NOT recyclable.  The only time a plastic bag should be recycled is with your "shredded" paper. It is very important that we keep our recycling compactor free of non-recyclables! Any questions on recycling please call Administrative Asssistant at 539-2664 x2 or download ecomaine's app - Recyclopedia for answers to any questions. Brochures are available at Town office.
