Missing Recycling Cart Replacement Request

Leave This Blank:

Please note: each single family household is entitled to receive and use one recycling cart at no charge. If the recycling cart or bin assigned to your household is missing, you may use this form to request a new one.
PLEASE NOTE: carts that are "missing" have often been misplaced or moved elsewhere along the street or accidentally switched with a neighbor's cart. Please check to see if your cart can be located nearby, at a neighbor's house - or if there may be an unused/abandoned cart sitting out in your neighborhood that you can use. This is generally the quickest way to resolve a missing cart issue.

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.)
