Effective September 1, 2018, Waste Management, at the request of the Town of Cumberland, will no longer collect any recycling material that is in plastic bags.
This change is due to an increase in the amount of contaminated recycling received by ecomaine. Plastic bags are a contaminant and not recyclable through our curbside recycling program. The only items that will be collected by Waste Management are trash in the green Town of Cumberland PAYT Bags and recycling in bins or properly labeled carts. If you need a label for your bin/cart, recycling stickers will be available at Town Hall in mid-July for no cost.
