The Orono landfill, located on Taylor Road off outer Forest Avenue, will be open free of charge to Orono residents on Nov. 2-4. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Proof of residency or property ownership is required.

Acceptable items include: Household and furniture items (no TVs, monitors, batteries, fluorescent tubes or computers); boards, debris, metal (items must be separated at the landfill); non-freon white goods (i.e. stoves, microwaves, cabinets).

The only charge for residents during these days is the $20/item fee for items containing freon (i.e. refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers and air conditioners) which must be obtained from the Town Office prior to drop-off at the landfill.

No tires, auto engines or car bodies can be dropped off. However, up to two tires (without rims) can be placed curbside with your weekly trash pickup.
