I was wondering if any one knows where I can get fine sawdust (or any kind really, shavings etc) for free around the Pownal/Portland area?
Thank!

Jon,
If "any kind" is truly OK with you, then I'd look for the closest "millwork" shop or sawmill.
Millwork shops produce about 100 gallons per week. Sawmills produce so much that they give it away by the pickup truck load.
If you want only hardwood cuttings, then ( per Lisa F - thank you) contact a tree service company, like Davey or Lucas. Prepare a place for them to dump a truck load, without prior notice.

Good luck
David

John, I feel like I've seen a few millwork places lately...I knew of one near IDEXX in Westbrook but I'm sure there are more. Slower economy = less construction = less millwork happening, but it's out there to some degree! The lumber places (Hancock et al) probably can also point you in a good direction.

Thanks lisa!

Found one: Phinney Lumber, 519 Fort Hill Rd, Gorham, 839-3336. They have mixed fine sawdust with shavings @ $37/cord.

Another couple sawmill possibilities would be Fat Andy's in N. Yarmouth and Sullivan's in New Gloucester- I know both these places do a lot of hardwood sawing and milling.

Jesse,
I checked those two out and Fat Andys sells theirs to a brick mill and Sullivans does sell it but are currently under contract with someone or company.

Maschino and sons in new gloucester sells it but its more like shavings. Its $30/pick up truck load.

Fox lumber in Durham also sells it @ $6/XL leaf bag.
