The town of Bowdoinham in 1992 was recycling more than half its solid waste, well ahead of the state's schedule for municipal recycling, but, in the report card released last month by the Maine Waste Management Agency, the town's level of recycling had fallen to 30.7 percent. Part of the problem is that the town never joined a regional recycling compact, and last year selectmen suspended the town's practice of accepting compost material. The tax-rich town of Wiscasset performed well on the MWMA rating, but is spending significantly more on its recycling program. Details.
