Pay-To-Throw

Pay-To-Throw Program, Disposal & Recycling Information:

The Town of Eliot began a six month trial period of the Pay-To-Throw System at the Transfer Station on September 3, 2013. Because the program proved to be a significant cost savings to the Town, the Board of Selectmen implemented the program on a full time basis in April of 2014.

The Solid Waste / Recycling Committee held three informational meetings between July and September of 2013 discussing the new program and giving residents the opportunity to learn how Pay-To-Throw will work.

If you were unable to attend one of the information sessions being offered or you would just like to review the information again, the power point presentation as well as informational flyers on recycling and composting are posted below for your convenience.

The required bags can be purchased at the Eliot Agway, Route 236 Variety and Cumberland Farms; all local businesses located on Route #236 in Eliot as well as at Jackson's Hardware on the Route 1 Bypass in Kittery, ME and the Rite Aid on Shapleigh Road/Rt.103 in Kittery, ME. Biodegradable composting bags (5 gal.) are available free of charge at the Transfer Station and the Eliot Town Clerk's Office. 

The price for bags will be as follows:
15 gallon bags
- roll of ten bags $12.50
30 gallon bags - roll of five bags $10.00
