ecomaine’s Environmental Management

ecomaine serves the solid waste needs of  more than 70 municipalities across Maine utilizing a waste-to-energy (WTE) power plant, single-sort recycling center and a 274-acre landfill/ashfill.  It monitors adjacent waters and air emission releases to assure that none of its facility operations adversely impact the surrounding environment.

ecomaine is ISO 14001: 2015 certified with TUV Rheinland of North America. This certification is for excellence in environmental management at all three ecomaine facilities (the WTE and recycling center since 2002 and the landfill/ashfill since 2007). To maintain this certification, ecomaine undergoes ongoing, semi-annual audits by an accredited registrar.

ecomaine is the largest publicly owned and operated integrated waste management service in the U.S. to hold these certifications at its three facilities.
