AWS’s award winning recycling program makes it easy and convenient for both residents and businesses to recycle household products and office paper.

Whether you live alone, are a member of a large family, work alone, or work with several others your commitment to recycling really is important.

Igloo Recycling Centers are located many communities throughout Central and Northern Aroostook County. Every effort has been made to place the Centers in an easily accessible common area in each community such as close to the Post Office, Municipal Office, or grocery store.
