Ensuring affordable, long term, and environmentally sound disposal of MSW

What material will the facility accept?

MWS handles municipal solid waste (MSW) from member communities. some commercial haulers, and, potentially, other cities and towns in Maine if capacity is available.  The facility will accept solid waste that meets the definition of Acceptable Waste found in Exhibit A of the Master Waste Supply Aggreement.  This definition is identical to that included in communities’ previous contracts with PERC. MWS will not accept any out‐of‐state waste for processing. MWS will not receive any construction and demolition debris (CDD) or out‐of‐state waste for processing.
