Solid Waste and Recycling


Hope is a charter member of Mid-Coast Solid Waste Corporation along with the towns of Camden, Rockport, and Lincolnville.  The Mid-Coast Solid Waste facility is a "pay as you throw" station that provides recycling and solid waste services to these four towns.    The facility sells yellow trash bags that may be purchased for household trash.  A fee schedule is available for other landfill or demolition items.  Recycling is free.

All trash that is not recyclable must be in yellow Pay-As-You-Throw bags.  33-gallon bags are $10.00 for a package of 4, and 20-gallon bags (tall kitchen trash size) are $15.00 for a package of 10. They can be purchased at the Transfer Station, Hope General Store, Western Auto, Hannaford's, EBS, Rankin's Lumber, Megunticook Market, French & Brawn's and the four town offices (Hope, Lincolnville, Camden, and Rockport).

For more information, please visit the facility's website at http://www.midcoastsolidwaste.org/ or visit their Facebook page at Mid-Coast Solid Waste Corporation.
