Wondering what can—and can not—be recycled?
Every recycling cart has an image imprinted on its lid that shows the basic items accepted for collection (to see a copy of this image click here.)
Our handy, free mobile app contains a database of thousands of items so you can quickly find out how to recycle, dispose or compost something! www.my-waste.mobi/FrederickMD
Use the following links to download/print: a list of recyclable and nonrecyclable items, a detailed fact sheet on plastics, and ways to "recycle right".
Please note the curbside, single-stream recycling program is for common residential, household materials and packaging - NOT for scrap or large items such as window glass, mirrors, scrap metal objects, large plastic items, etc.
