The City of Saco operates a transfer station on Foss Road. This facility is used for bulky waste that cannot be collected during curbside collection. It is for Saco residents only. A complete list of acceptable materials and transfer station hours are listed below.
Saco property owners may obtain a permit that allows them to deposit up to three (3) cubic yards of acceptable material (including clean asphalt shingles) free of charge at the transfer station. The yardage is good for one year beginning July 1 and will be renewed automatically every year with the same yardage, unless you have obtained additional properties. This permit is similar to a credit card and is permanent for as long as you own your property. You may obtain a permit at Saco Public Works or online by following the link below. If your card is lost, the City can replace it for a $5.00 fee. Once you have used your free yardage for the year, you will be charged the current rates for dumping.
Property owners of multifamily buildings having six units or fewer are eligible for 1 permit for up to and not exceeding 10 cubic yards, depending on the number of units in the building. Three yards are issued for the 1st unit, 1 yard for each additional. One card will be issued for multiple owned properties not exceeding the 10 yard limit.
