By Maryland law, yard waste is not permitted to be disposed of in Landfills. As this regulation challenged how things were being done across the state, here in Frederick County, we refocused on our agriculture roots and began a program that would include turning yard waste into a product that benefits the green thumbs of Frederick County. 
  • Yard Waste can be dropped of rain or shine, Monday through Saturday 7AM-4:30PM for NO COST at facility at 9031 Reichs Ford Road, Frederick MD, 21704
