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

MRC Members

The MRC represents 115 Maine member communities that have contracted to have their municipal solid waste (MSW) processed at the recycling and waste processing facility in Hampden, Maine. About 40% of MRC members are part of a solid waste district and/or consolidate their waste through a transfer station serving multiple communities.  Together, MRC members are anticipated to deliver just over 100,000 tons of MSW annually to the facility.
