Waste Management for Renewable Energy

Waste management might be an avoided business, but we’re proud to get our hands dirty every day.

Our facility is open.

In order to reduce the exposure of our employees and visitors, we ask that you maintain a distance of six feet from others when visiting and make every effort to limit your visits to once a week. We appreciate your cooperation as we take these precautions. Thank you.

Managing Maine’s Waste Today
for a Better Tomorrow.

We use safe and reliable systems to convert trash into renewable energy shared directly to the grid, instead of a landfill. It’s a complex process with a simple purpose: take an unavoidable byproduct of life and transform it into something that contributes positively to all future generations. By reducing landfill volumes and staying local to minimize pollution, we take care of today’s problem today.
