The Town of Wiscasset has operated a transfer station on Fowles Hill Road since 1991 following the closure of its landfill. The transfer station is housed in one main building and two outbuildings (one for operation of the scale and one for storage).  We also have several other structures used for temporary storage of waste and recycling materials slated for transport to permanent disposal sites. Since the landfill closure in 1991, Wiscasset’s station is truly a transfer-based operation with no permanent storage of waste.

The present staff consists of a supervisor, one full-time laborer, and one full-time truck driver/laborer.
