Bangor residents will soon throw their recycling in with the trash

The city of Bangor will soon change how residents dispose of their waste, eliminating the current program in which they separate recyclables — such as milk jugs and magazines — from the trash before it’s all left at the curbside for pickup. Instead, the City Council voted Monday night to move to a new program in which residents will mix their recyclables and trash into the same loads that are picked up from the curbside on a weekly basis. When the change takes effect in September, the loads will go to a new waste processing facility in Hampden that has been designed to automatically divert paper, plastic, organic material and other recyclable materials out of the waste stream.
