Effective Immediately - Recycling Program Changes

The Recycling Barn is closed to the public, however the Solid Waste Department will remain open for the collection of recyclable materials.  We will be utilizing "Silver Bullet," recycling dumpsters for the collection of the following items:  

  • corrugated cardboard including brown paper bags, (cardboard must be broken down);
  • clean mixed recyclables to include, tin cans, plastic household containers #1 - #7 and aluminum foil; and
  • mixed paper, including newsprint, magazines, office paper, cereal boxes and any other paperboard boxes, clean tissues and paper plates.

At this time we are not able to process any other items.  Trash tags will be available for sale.

We will be resuming our Saturday hours; open Thursdays and Saturdays, 8am to 4pm.

Please adhere to the Governor's Guidelines by maintaining a 6-ft distance and wearing a face covering.  

Please contact Bryan Benson at 666-3228 or recycling@bowdoinham.com with any questions.
