SALE OF TRANSFER STATION STICKERS

SPECIAL NOTICE:  Due to current Covid19 Conditions, please wear an appropriate mask/face covering when on the presmises of the Solid Waste Transfer Station.

The decision by the Three-Town Solid Waste Corporation Board of Directors to implement a firm policy on transfer station user stickers has proven beneficial to the organization, and to the taxpayers of the towns of Owls Head, South Thomaston and Thomaston.  The transfer station is a project managed by the three towns that saw the wisdom of entering into an inter-local agreement several years ago.

Transfer station sticker policy was approved in 2018 and has demonstrated success in significantly reducing the use of the transfer station by non-residents, while keeping the costs at a minimum.  A redesign of the stickers for the next two years will virtually eliminate unauthorized use of the transfer station by anyone who is not a resident in one of the three towns.

The 2021-2022 sticker is YELLOW, and is not transferable.

No system is perfect.  But one policy, fairly administered by the six representatives (two from each town), provides the employees of the transfer station the direction they need to protect the investment and trust of the taxpayers.

Please keep in mind that the $18 fee per sticker is for two (2) years – 24 months; 104 weeks.

Any vehicle that enters the transfer station for the purposed of depositing trash, mixed solid waste, cardboard, metal, single stream recyclables or compostable material is required to display a valid sticker on the interior driver side, bottom of the windshield of said vehicle, as per Maine State Law.

The current policy did away with use of a single, free-floating sticker from one vehicle to another, which was the norm in many households.  Because of a number of instances of misue over the years, the policy was created to reduce the volume of unanuthorized materials coming into the transfer sation, and to control costs of transferring waste to EcoMaine and other destinations.

The policy requires anyone who is a resident of Owls Head, South Thomaston, or Thomaston who personally delivers their waste to the transferstation to purchase a sticker for their vehicle at a cost equal to less than 18 cents per week, (the cost of a sticker for two years), for the privilege of using the transfer station.

Non-residents are prohibited from using the transfer station.
