Recycling CAUTION – We Need Your Help!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

On Thursday, January 9, Coastal Resources of Maine suffered mechanical damage to a key piece of equipment caused by a fire. The Hampden Fire Department acted quickly, and the fire was contained.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but two Coastal Resources employees working in the area at the time of the incident were affected with one suffering minor injuries that required immediate medical attention.
The root cause of the fire appears to be a propane tank that exploded during processing.

Hazardous Waste such as propane tanks, including camp stove canisters and the like, ARE NOT accepted at Coastal Resources. Due to the gas and pressure inside, these tanks cannot be recycled with household waste or single stream recycling and are a danger to all who handle waste.

As MRC Members, it is our responsibility to make sure the household waste and recycling sent to Coastal Resources for processing is free of unacceptable materials, especially Hazardous Wastes.

It is the MRC Members’ responsibility to educate their residents on what CAN NOT be disposed of in household waste and recycling.

Please post notices on your Municipal websites and social media pages. It is essential that we encourage our residents to properly dispose of all waste, so they do not risk injuring themselves or sanitation workers.

We cannot risk endangering the lives of sanitation workers by sending dangerous and unacceptable waste to the Coastal Resources of Maine facility.

Please review and reiterate the unacceptable waste list to your residents at:

Municipal Solid Waste Guidelines

Thank you for help in keeping everybody who handles our municipal waste safe.

  • Home & Away Program Friday, April 10  10:00 am - 1:00 pm Wilson Museum Hutchins Education Center

    Back by popular demand, the Home & Away homeschool program by the Wilson Museum will return on October 11 (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Structured for ages 4 to 14, each three-hour session is inspired by the Museum's worldwide collection and local history as well as the community's educational resources. Included will be a break for lunch (please bring your own). Some sessions will include a local field trip and some sessions will include a guest presenter.

    Reservations are required ($10 per child) in advance of each session and space is limited. Reserve a spot up to three weeks before each month's session or sign-up in September for a seven-session series pass at $70 per child. Only six series passes are available. Make reservations and get your pass by calling 207-326-9247 or by emailing info@wilsonmuseum.org.

    Home & Away will occur on the second Friday of each month from October through April. Unless otherwise noted, sessions will begin in the Wilson Museum's Hutchins Education Center located at 112 Perkins Street, Castine, ME.

    Information on this program is available on our website and on our Home & Away event page on Facebook. Feel free to share the information on this program with other homeschool families.
