A message from ecomaine

 

Hello Everyone,

My colleague Vanessa Berry, one of our Environmental Educators, will be doing a recycling educational program on Monday June 24th at Bonney Memorial Library in Cornish (start time is 5:30PM).

The  event is free to the public and we would love to have any of you attend  and if possible you could publicize the event in your communities to  spread the word we would really appreciate it!

Thank you very much,

Lissa

Video From ecomaine

Welcome

 

We would like to thank the citizens of Baldwin, Hiram, Porter, and of course our attendants at the transfer station for their help with our recycling efforts. As you can see from the letter (see below) we received from ecomaine, your efforts have paid off. We have not been charged tipping fees for excessive contamination.


“Another great month for your communities!  Thank you for the super clean recycling and for everyone’s effort!  It’s been almost a year since we began tracking contamination in the recycling loads and in that time only 2 of the loads from your towns exceeded 5% contamination and that was in the first month of our evaluating the loads.  Since June of last year, the loads have consistently been between 0-1% contaminated.  What an excellent trend for your communities!

We thank you very much for your exemplary work!”

Please continue to help us maintain and improve our record of very low contamination. We can’t do it without your help.
