Fiberight's Coastal Resources of Maine will Accept Materials in March
Coastal Resources will begin accepting single stream recycling (SSR) from Municipal Review Committee (MRC) communities that have executed contracts for services with the Hampden, ME facility in the coming weeks.
Fiberight and Coastal Resources officials have worked closely with the MRC to develop a methodology for ramp up starting with SSR in March and continuing with municipal solid waste (MSW) deliveries to the new facility. The onboarding plan for MSW encompasses a three month period set to begin in April.
Because it is not possible to bring every community's waste in on Day One, MRC towns have been sorted into three (3) onboarding groups based on a variety of factors such as: transportation expenses, delivery methods, delivery schedules, geography, clear preference to avoid landfill, MSW tonnage generated per month, and the number of possible deliveries per week.
Municipalities are being contacted by staff directly to discuss their individual onboarding scenarios in more detail.
Note: MRC towns
automatically contracted with Coastal Resources for SSR services, a
contract must be executed with the facility
prior to any town delivering single stream materials to the plant.
If your town is a member of the MRC and you would like to contract with Coastal Resources for single stream recycling services, please
for more information and/or to set up an appointment.
