What and Where to Recycle

Our compost site, for use by City residents, is located at the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) just off US 8, south of Danielson’s Greenhouse (the physical address is N1700 US Highway 8). Compost items include grass clippings, leaves, and brush; drop off these items daily, at no charge.  

We have a recycling container, also for use by City residents, located at the Department of Public Works (DPW; 400 Tenth Avenue).  Recycle paper, #1 and #2 plastics, and tin cans.  We have two dumpsters for scrap iron.  We do not take cardboard.  Recycle daily at no charge; scrap iron must be dropped off during hours of operation (non-holiday weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.).        

Residents of any city or township in Dickinson County may bring used oil and batteries to the Dickinson County Solid Waste Processing Facility (Great American Disposal) in Quinnesec (W7702 US 2), at no charge.  They collect tires for a fee according to size.  They’re open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon).  On questionable items, call 774-5680 first.  For more information, link to

The Norway-Vulcan area demonstrates a remarkable level of citizen engagement in organizations, volunteer work, and public events.  If you or someone you know is applying to a school, or applying for a job, remember that many colleges, universities, and employers look for volunteer work on candidates' applications and resumes. 

Thank you for your civic engagement.
