DYER BROOK — The Northern Katahdin Valley Solid Waste District will open its new transfer station and recycling center in Dyer Brook on Saturday.
George Horton, manager of the facility, said municipal solid waste will be accepted on a temporary schedule during the final stage of construction. He said the station, which is located on U.S. Route 2, will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Only normal household trash, general refuse and recyclable materials will be accepted at this time, Harmon said. Bulky waste, appliances, furniture, metals and demolition debris will be accepted in about a month, he said, after construction is completed. Permanent operating hours will be announced at a grand opening at that time, he said.
The district serves the towns of Amity, Crystal, Dyer Brook, Island Falls, Hammond, Hersey, Island Falls, Merrill, Mount Chase, Moro Plantation, New Limerick and Patten.
Transfer station access stickers are available for $2 at the town offices of member towns. Specific information regarding the disposal of recyclable materials also is available at the town offices.
