Town of Kennebunk Pay-As-You-Throw Trash Bags
For those who may occasionally have more trash than will fit in your curbside collection trash container, may be away during the scheduled collection, or live on a lengthy private road and find the curbside collection program difficult, the transfer station will accept household trash provided it is in the Town's PAYT trash bags.
