During the 2012 Regular Session, the Maryland General Assembly enacted a new provision requiring owners/managers of apartment buildings or councils of unit owners of condominiums that contain 10 or more units to provide residents with the opportunity for recycling, on or before October 1, 2014.
Frederick County Government does not provide waste collection services (trash or recycling) for commercial entities, including multi-family properties. Commercial property owners/managers/landlords are responsible for managing waste and recycling collection on their site.
Property Owner's Role
Apartment and condominium officials are responsible for:
Providing recycling service to the residents of each building no later than October 1, 2014.
Securing and managing contracts for providing material collection/recycling service for all building locations.
Providing clearly marked collection bins for recyclable materials and containers for transporting the materials off site. (May be provided by the contracted recycling hauler.)
