Maine Waste-to-Energy takes your trash seriously. 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.
