When the town "dump" was capped in 1999, it was replaced by the Waste Management Facility. This facility functions as a transfer station, everything that comes here must be sorted and stored for eventual recycling or disposal elsewhere. Therefore, it is vital that loads entering the gate be packed to facilitate easy and quick separation.

Starting April 10, 2023, Falmouth residents or small business owners may drop-off Single Stream recyclable materials including Cardboard at the WMF.

  • Disposal Sticker or one-visit payment is REQUIRED.
  • CHARGE for Recycling is $2.50 / Per Each 32-Gallon quantity of material.
  • Recyclable materials must be clean, dry, and free of contaminants.
  • Residents will be required to dump-out their recyclables into containers provided at the Gate for inspection and measurement of quantity.
  • Plastic Bags are not accepted in recycling and must be removed by resident.
  • Paper Bags are accepted to contain papers and cardboard.
