Single Stream Recycling

Lewiston has Single Stream Recycling! Materials Can Be Recycled with No Need to Pre-Sort!

Recycling Helpful Hint! - Please put trash and recyclable containers on different sides of driveway. Along with a visible "RECYCLING" sticker on one of the containers; this simple step will help guide the two companies contracted for trash and recyclable collection as to residents' intentions.



For recycling, a standard container (36 gallons) with a lid is recommended. We will provide a sticker label that you can place on the outside of your preferred recycling container. If you have an older blue tote for recycling, it can still be used.  View our Accepted Materials for Recycling List and our Items Not Accepted as Recyclable List to learn about what items we can and cannot accept.

For Further Information

Pamphlets, recycle stickers for your recycle container, and other information on the Single Stream Recycling Program are available through many community groups and nonprofit organizations as well as at the following locations:

  • Lewiston City Hall, 27 Pine Street
  • Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon Street
  • Lewiston Public Works, 103 Adams Avenue
  • Lewiston Solid Waste Facility, 424 River Road

Every ton we recycle saves the city $42.50 (or $34,000 per year) at the city’s current recycling rate, providing tax relief for us all.
