EcoMaine is sponsoring what it is calling EcoFest for Earth Day this year.
In case you didn’t know, EcoMaine is southern Maine’s leader in recycling and waste-to-energy operations.
It serves about one-third of the state’s population.
Twenty Maine communities own EcoMaine, which is technically a non-profit organization, but it serves some 65 communities in the state.
EcoMaine is located in Portland.
