Talking Trash: Happy springtime China and Palermo residents

April is EARTH MONTH and time to get rid of the winter uglies along the sides of our roads. If you are able, please take a plastic bag to reuse and a pair of old gloves so you can pick up and then toss into the Transfer Station hopper with the rest of your disposables.

Call some of your neighbors to plan a roadside cleanup on the weekend of April 20-21 as Earth Day is April 22. We appreciate your labors and time to help keep China, Maine, green and clean.

We will have another opportunity Saturday, April 27, for you to plan! It’s the springtime Drug Drop-off at the Transfer Station, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the recycle area. Bag up all of those old/unused prescriptions and bring them over. There will be one of Kennebec County’s Deputies Sheriff’s there to assist and answer questions you may have. No needles or other sharpies can be accepted.

For FREE! we will take in any and all light bulbs on that same day.

The shredder will be back in the autumn of this year.

There is a place on Airport Road, Waterville, where you can drop off TVs you no longer want or need. Ask the Transfer Station attendants if you need more information.

Revenues are down but please don’t stop recycling. Thank you!

Toss plastic bags into the hopper and also reuse them for trash and wastebasket liners.

With spring cleaning time comes, “what to do,” with clean, good condition items. We have the “Free For Taking” building. We also have the box for clean clothes, shoes and purses. Help us to keep that area from disarray. For those who have been looking there are books and puzzles that show up. Children’s toys are very popular, also.

The Transfer Station crew is going for two days of training soon but the Transfer Station will be open its usual hours.


Thank you all who helped to make it. Kevin does a great job getting it cooked.
