Mid Coast Solid Waste is a pay-as-you-throw facility. Most of our variable, volume based costs are therefore paid by each generator as you enter the facility rather than subsidized completely through our tax base. In this way, each household only pays for what they use given the opportunities to reduce and recycle as much as possible. Household trash typically arrives in our 30 gallon yellow permit bags which cost $2.00 each. Commercial loads typically go over our scales and are charged a rate of $140.00 per ton.

See our FEE SCHEDULE for more details

Bags are available at all our Town Offices as well as a number of retail locations listed below:
