Solid Waste/ Recycling

Solid Waste/Municipal Trash is picked up curbside on Thursday morning starting at 7:00 am.  Trash must be containerized and must not weigh more than 40 lbs.  Unacceptable materials will be left curbside for owners’ disposal.  
Our waste hauler, Maine Waste Systems, observes the following holidays: New Year, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If the holiday is celebrated on a Thursday your trash pick-up will be Friday instead of the normal Thursday pick-up.

Effective July 1, 2019 the Town of Bradley will no longer be participating in a traditional recycling program.  Your household solid waste/trash will be processed with your household trash.

A facility in Hampden offers a recycling technology that recovers sustainable resources from the waste stream.  They were redefining waste as a resource and changing trash disposal to recover wasted materials and market them as a new valued commodity. Essentially, this technology separated and processed recycling out of your normal household trash.  

The Municipal Review Committee has joined forces with Innovative Resource Recovery as co-owners of Municipal Wast Solutions’ Hampden Facility.  This facility is not currently operational but information will be forthcoming as the facility works to get online.
