Windham Recycles!

Windham is still among the leaders of EcoMaine communities in recycling! Now, thanks to new equipment at ecomaine, all types of recyclable materials go into the same need to separate!

Single Sort Recycling

Recycling is simple for Windham residents. Instead of separating recyclables by type, simply combine all glass, metal, paper, cardboard, and plastics into one recycling container. Download the Single Sort Brochure to learn more. 

With a renewed commitment, we can meet the state's goal of 50% recycling with your continued commitment.

Recycling Tips

 We ask that you have your trash and recyclables out for pickup no later than 7 a.m. on your collection day. Because pickup crews and the amounts of trash and recyclables vary somewhat from week to week, pickup times may also vary. The fewer return trips we have to make, the less the program will cost in the end.

If it's raining or snowing you can still put your recyclables out, but it's better if you wait to put your paper products out when it is dry if possible.

Remember, the more you recycle, the more you save. Not only do you save on the cost of bags, but additionally we all save on disposal costs. The cost of each bag ($1.35 for 13-gallon size and $2.70 for 30-gallon size) pays for the bag, plus collection, transportation, and disposal of trash. Curbside collection of recyclables is a cost shared by all the taxpayers of Windham, amounting to about 1% of your annual tax bill.

Thanks for your efforts in making Windham a leader in recycling. Keep up the good work! If your trash or recyclables did not get picked up please call Pine Tree at 773-1122.
