Waste Management (Including Recycling)
On January 17, 2006, the Board of County Commissioners approved an ordinance prohibiting yard waste from being disposed in the Frederick County Landfill. This ordinance pertains to both residential and commercial users. Yard waste consists of materials normally generated in the maintenance of gardens, yards, lawns, or landscaped areas whether residential, commercial or public. This includes leaves, grass clippings, plants, shrubs and prunings. Yard waste does not include: land clearing debris, waste pavement, soil or any edible food product (fruits and vegetables) from any garden, yard, lawn or landscaped area.
The Department of Solid Waste Management encourages residents to
at home (click the links for helpful how-to tips) and also provides
two drop off locations
for the collection of yard waste.
The majority of the yard waste processed by the County is converted into
mulch or compost for sale
at the 9031 Reichs Ford Road Yard Waste Recycling site.
