The Solid Waste Management and Recycling Plan for Maine (the "Waste Plan") will be revised and made available by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in January 2024.
In compliance with state law, this plan is reviewed and revised every five years. The most recent Waste Plan was released in 2019, and it is available here. The Department is seeking public input for updating the Waste Plan and will be hosting a series of five regional stakeholder meetings as part of that stakeholder process. These meetings will be accessible either in-person or remotely, ensuring all interested parties are able to participate. The first three meetings took place on June 21, June 29, and July 10. The final meetings will take place on July 26 from 1-4 pm on the AMHI Campus and on August 9 from 1-4 pm on the University of Southern Maine, Portland Campus.
