Town of Orono recently issued the following announcement.
The landfill, located on Taylor Road off outer Forest Avenue, will be open FREE OF CHARGE to Orono residents for three days this fall. In response to public input, free landfill drop-off days were added for November 2, 3 and 4, 2018. Hours of operation are from 8am-4pm.
Proof of residency or property ownership is required. Acceptable items include: ♦ Household and furniture items (NO TVs, monitors, batteries, fluorescent tubes or computers) ♦ Boards, debris, metal (items must be separated at the landfill) ♦ Non-freon white goods (i.e. stoves, microwaves, cabinets) The only charge for residents during these days is the $20/item fee for items containing freon (i.e. refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers and air conditioners) which must be obtained from the Town Office prior to drop-off at the landfill. No tires, auto engines or car bodies can be dropped off. However, up to two tires (without rims) can be placed curbside with your weekly trash pickup.
