T and S days are dump days. The Bridgton Transfer Station is open for business on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Planning to serve lobster on Sunday night? A word to the wise, don’t, as the odor from the lobster debris will linger in the garage until a trip to the transfer station on Tuesday. Several day old lobster waste involves driving to the dump with one’s head hanging out the window gasping for fresh air. God forbid it should be raining.
Those accustom to living in metropolitan areas are well aware of when to place household trash by the curb. Urbanites know that magically, in the wee hours of the morning one’s trash is invisibly whisked away. At The Lake, one subscribes to the motto, pack it in, pack it out. Unless the The Dump Guy is on the payroll, trash management is the responsibility of the homeowner.
Yankee frugality and conservation is on display at the dump as Mainers take their trash and recycling seriously. At The Transfer Station, one is able to recycle, dump, compost and purchase items at The Transfer Station “Gift Shoppe”.
