Residential Recycling Cart Request Form

Leave This Blank:

If your household does not have a recycling cart or bin, use this form to request one for no cost.
Each single family household is entitled to receive and use one recycling cart at no charge. Use this form to request a cart if your address does not have one.

Please note: Multi-family properties (apartment complexes, some condominiums) are not eligible for the County's recycling service as Frederick County Government does not provide waste or recycling collection for commercial properties.

Keep in mind that recycling carts belong to Frederick County Government and are associated with a specific address. Carts stay at the house they’re assigned to, even if the homeowner moves.

Also, please note that carts cannot be permanently altered or marked on. (If you would like to label a cart with your address, try using duct tape or other non-permanent markings.)

FOR HOMES BUILT IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS: Carts for newly built homes are ONLY delivered on a street's first recycling collection day in each month. If your request comes in on or after that day, you will receive a cart and begin recycling service the NEXT month. (Frederick County provides recycling service via a contractor that is paid on monthly basis. If you are requesting a cart for a NEWLY CONSTRUCTED home built in the past year, your cart cannot be delivered until your address has been added to our monthly service payment. You may use the recycling drop-off center at 9031 Reichs Ford Road, or, simply utilize your trash service until recycling commences.)
