There is no other department in Town where residents can have a direct impact on operational costs. Recycling saves valuable resources, reduces operating costs and reduces disposal fees. As markets for recyclables change, the Supervisor may change procedures on how recyclables are handled. Attendants at the Transfer Station are at your service and are here to help. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or offer comments you may have. For those who make a great effort to recycle, keep up the good work!
Please open the Additional Information links located below for Transfer Station Rules and Everyday Recycling for further information on how to sort your trash and recycling.
The Transfer Station Rules require the Town to charge disposal fees on wastes the Town pays extra for and are not included in the tax base. These fees are user fees. Not all residents generate these types of waste and therefore residents are required to "Pay as You Throw." Please check with an attendant to view the complete list of fees. Call or ask an attendant if fees apply before bringing waste to the Transfer Station.
NOTICE: Effective September 1, 2022, many of our fees will be changing. Pay-as-You-Throw bags will increase from small roll $5 to $8 and large roll $7.50 to $10.
Household trash must be placed in official Town of South Berwick Blue Bags. These bags may be purchased at the following locations:
