Bay Area Transfer Station and Recycling Report 2016-2017
It has been another busy year at the Bay Area Transfer Station and Recycling Center.
With the continuous falling prices of recyclables we have been trying hard to stay above water. In the past year approximately 480 tons of recyclables was shipped to various mills in Maine and Canada.
Approximately 2400 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) was shipped to PERC in Orrington, where it is incinerated to generate power and approximately 80 tons of demolition debris to Juniper Ridge in Old Town.
We are trying to keep the facility as neat and clean as possible to stay within D.E.P. and OSHA guidelines. There is always room for improvement.
I would like to thank Zeke Schmitter and Ryan Seiber for their hard work and dedication. I would also like to thank the Public Works Department for all of their help in the past year to keep our facility looking good.
