New Landfill Stickers are required to enter Norridgewock Landfill

The Town of Anson has NEW landfill stickers that we have been using for almost a year now. The Norridgewock Landfill will let all Anson residents know of this change and have them come into the Town Office to receive their Free replacement sticker. You now need that new sticker in order to go to the Norridgewock Landfill.

The stickers will now expire when your vehicle registration expires. So, in the future you will need to let us know that you are in need of a new sticker. We put the expiration date on all stickers.

If you have any questions about this new process, feel free to contact us at the Anson Town Office at 696-3979 or 696-8053
