**** NOTICE ****

 

EcoMaine is having a problem with contaminated loads of recycling materials. They cannot accept the following materials: single use shopping bags, trash bags with either recycling or trash in them, food waste, textiles, clothing, pillows, metal or plastic hangers, hoses, plastic containers larger than 5 gallons and Styrofoam forms still in their cardboard boxes.

Downgraded loads (loads which contain 5-9.99% contaminants by volume) incur a contamination fee of $40 per ton and rejected loads (loads which contain 10% or more of contaminants by volume) incur a contamination fee of $70.50 per ton.

Our last load was 20% contaminated, weighed 6.20 tons, and cost Tri-Town $437.10, when in fact, it should not have cost us anything.

Please help us keep our cost down by being aware of the items that are acceptable in the recycling containers. If this problem continues we will be forced to raise the amount requested for the station at your next town meeting. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
