Curbside recycling pickup is the same day as trash pickup, however, all recycled materials must be sorted by type. If you find your recycling bin has not been emptied, it may be because your items are all mixed together. The Town of Rumford recycles all plastics, glass, cans, cardboard, paper, newspaper and magazines and receives money for these materials that reduces the cost of waste removal. The Town contracts with Archie’s, Inc., for recycling and trash collection. Their employees have been helping residents over the years by taking time to sort through items to place in the recycling truck. Although this has been helpful, the Town has not contracted for that service and the recycling collection route takes much longer. Although it will take us a little more time to sort, it is a worthwhile effort to cut costs and keep materials out of landfills. We can all make a difference and our future generations will appreciate our efforts. Please contact the Transfer Station with any questions on trash and recycling at 364-3645, Archie’s at 364-2425 or the Town Manager’s Office at 364-4576. Recycling helps our planet and cuts costs. Please think about this every time you throw something into the trash. FMI click on the Community tab on this website.
