Since 1991, the recycling arm of Frederick County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling has served the entire population of Frederick County by uniquely advocating and executing programs centered around the 5Rs: 

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse, and Rot. 

While our blue bin curbside residential program serves 86,000+ homes, our recycling program encompasses a comprehensive recycling center that is free and open to the public. 

This center includes both single-stream (blue bin) items as well as items that can be recycled through alternate programs.

Frederick County recycling also works with third parties and different organizations to implement special programs and events such as textile, household hazardous waste, and other collections that benefit the county's residents. 

These services are supported by the SBC fee and are open to all residents of Frederick County. 

Commercial single-stream recycling is available from various haulers and has a tipping fee of $25 per ton. 

Service Status: 

Normal, with no service interruptions.
