Due to the large increase in the cleaning of surfaces, with disinfectant wipes and paper products, we would like to remind, our customers, to please not flush these items down the toilet. These items will clog up your sewer lines and our equipment. Even if with the word “flushable” these should be thrown in your trash.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation

Effects on MRWA training, and events:
As of 1pm, Thursday March 12, 2020, Gov. Janet Mills confirmed Maine's first positive case of COVID-19. The Maine CDC is recommending that all large non-essential gatherings (over 250 people) be postponed for at least 30 days.
In response, we have cancelled the Management and Administrative Summit scheduled for Tuesday, March 17th. All other classes and events are still scheduled as of now. We realize that this is a fluid situation and appreciate your understanding.
MRWA will always treat the health and safety of our attendees and participants as our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and will maintain regular contact with State and/or local officials including the Maine CDC. We will take all reasonable precautions necessary to prevent the spread of disease including:
In addition, we request you to stay home if you are sick or demonstrate health symptoms that could impact others, or believe you have or may have been exposed to the COVID-19 or other virus.
