The City of Bath contracts with Pine Tree Waste to collect your recyclables curbside. Now that Bath has single stream recycling, it’s never been easier to get lots of stuff out of your trash bags. Follow this link to our single stream recycling flyer for a list of what you can now recycle curbside.
If you need a blue Bath Tub (recycle bin), just visit the landfill scalehouse. We'll take your name and address and give you a tub with instructions on how to use it and when. But you don’t need a blue tub to recycle. You can use any container smaller than 32-gallons, write “RECYCLING” on the side and you’ve got yourself a Bath Tub. Even better, come out to the landfill or city hall and get an official bumper sticker for your homemade Bath Tub.
This enhancement to the curbside recycling program is in use for Bath residents. Please be sure all food and products are rinsed from items.
It ALL goes in together! You do not need to separate the materials – They will be collected all mixed together! You can now place in your blue bin or other container:
What NOT to include:
Recycling is mandatory in Bath and businesses are invited to participate by bringing their recyclables to the landfill. You can have your staff bring up the materials or hire a commercial hauler to do the work for you. Businesses in Bath do not participate in the curbside recycling program. You must abide by the rules and keep things separated. If you generate large quantities of recyclable materials, we ask that you make arrangements with a private hauler to take the materials to another facility as the landfill is not staffed or equipped to handle large loads. Please call the landfill (443-8356) to inquire if your loads will be accepted.
The Bath Landfill accepts all these materials for recycling. These items must be delivered to the landfill intact and undamaged. Curbside collection is not available for these items.
Universal wastes are items generated universally, by residents, schools, and businesses. The category includes:
Broken lamps will be accepted if placed inside two plastic bags.
Information on proper handling of broken lamps can be found here: Maine DEP Broken Bulb Info
