ARROWSIC RECYCLING AND SOLID WASTE COMMITTEE (ARSWC)



Trash

Put trash out by 7:00 a.m., according to the calendar link at the right, at the end of your driveway or the nearest collection point on a town road. Bulky items such as bikes, filing cabinets, construction debris, etc, are not appropriate.

Recycling

Arrowsic has a mandatory curbside zero-sort recycling program, handled by R.C. Rogers & Sons of West Bath. All items that are currently recyclable at curbside are picked up on a year-round biweekly schedule (i.e., every other week). The drivers can easily identify your recyclable materials if you place a yellow "Arrowsic Recycles" sticker on your recycling bins, and separate your recyclables by a few feet from your trash. Stickers are available for free in the white shed outside Town Hall.

In the shed you will also find informational handouts regarding pertinent waste disposal information and Town Trash/Recycling Schedules. ARSWC recycles your alkaline and rechargeable batteries, electronics, scrap metal, CD’s and cases, prescription bottles and plastic bottle caps and cords at the shed.

Sorting of recyclable materials at curbside is not necessary; however recyclables must be clean.
Items accepted in zero sort recycling include:
● glass of any color
● plastic bottles, jugs, tubs and lids (NO PLASTIC BAGS OF ANY KIND / NO STYROFOAM)
● aluminum, clean aluminum foil, tin and steel cans
● all paper including junk mail, periodicals and office paper of any color
● boxboard and paperboard (cereal boxes, egg crates, non-wax coated paper cups, etc)
● corrugated cardboard, folded into flat pieces of 3'x3' or smaller.

Arrowsic is committed to recycling non-contaminated recyclable items in an environmentally responsible manner.
