Public Works Facility on Cooper Drive
About Public Works
The Public Works Facility is located on Cooper Drive, next to the Cape Elizabeth Recycling Center. Visitor parking is located in front of the building. The Recycling Center is located off Spurwink Avenue, on Dennison Drive.
The department is responsible for all summer and winter road maintenance on the Town's 62 miles of roads. This ranges from storm drain maintenance, sweeping, and snow plowing. We also operate the Recycling Center for disposal of household refuse, recyclables, waste oil, demolition material, brush and leaves and cardboard. (This area is fomerly known and the Transfer Station and Refuse Disposal Area.) Our Parks Division maintains all municipal and school grounds, including small cemeteries and parks. The department also has the responsibility for maintaining the collector sewer system and right-of-way trees.
