Plans under way for Re-Use Barn

    DEXTER — A group of local citizens are planning to erect a Re-Use Barn at the Mid Maine Solid Waste (MMSW) facility on the Line Road between Corinna and Dexter. It’s envisioned as a storage building for accepting and dispensing useable and clean items donated by the public (stuff that’s no longer wanted by its owner but too good to just toss). 


    The main goal is to reduce the amount of materials entering the landfill, thereby reducing costs to all the users of MMSW. But it will also be a good way of prolonging the life of many useful things.

    Lots of details remain to be worked out, especially to determine if there’s enough volunteer support for staffing the barn every Saturday during warm weather. 

    If you have interest in donating two to three hours of your time per month to help staff the barn, or may be interested in helping with the actual construction, please contact Bev Crockett at 277-4221 or
