Recycling &

Rubbish Removal

A~plus  is a family-owned, local, recycling and rubbish removal business based in Waldoboro, Maine.  We offer residential and commercial pickup on a weekly or occasional basis. We currently offer service in Waldoboro, Friendship, and occasionally Cushing.

A~plus strongly encourages recycling.  Although it takes us more time to sort and distribute at the Transfer Station, it is the right thing to do. Non-recycling customers may be charged an extra fee as the Waldoboro Transfer Station has a strict policy for recycling. All rubbish brought there by commercial haulers must be accompanied by 18% (of the overall weight) of recyclables. If this ratio is not obtained, I have to pay a fee, which would have to be eventually passed on to my non-recycling customers.  So far, I have been lucky, and my customers recycle enough to get me through most months. 

 

The hardest thing is trying to get a non-recycling customer to change their ways.  Even just recycling cardboard makes a difference.  Add that to a few milk jugs and a couple cans and you're on the roll to recycling!

Residential

Pickup

$32 per month for pickup.  This includes up to 5 white household kitchen bags of trash per week plus household recycling.* More bags, no problem. Just add $1.50 per additional bag. If you prefer to use larger or smaller bags, just estimate kitchen bags by volume.

You may place your recycling into whatever container you like, as long as they are easily identified as recyclables and sorted into 4 categories (tin and glass, mixed paper and news paper, . Some people use Hannaford bags, or their recycling bins. If you choose to put out your bins, I will leave them for you to reuse.

We offer monthly billing by mail ($1.00 fee) or email billing (free). If you choose email, you have the option to pay by sending a check, electronic check, credit card, or debit card.

* Non-recycling households may be subject to a non-recycling fee should A~plus incur monthly charges from the Transfer Station due to not meeting recycling standards. A warning would be given before any fees were levied.
