Picture of County


The vision of the Carroll County Recycling Operation is to encourage a culture of Waste Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling. It is our goal to recommend and facilitate programs; educate students, residents, and businesses to minimize the waste stream; and maximize the recovery of valuable and useful materials. This is our commitment to the environment and the people of our communities.

Recycling Operations offers voluntary recycling opportunities for all Carroll County residents and businesses. Licensed haulers are required to offer all their customers a curbside recycling service. For residents or businesses who wish to haul their own waste and recyclables to the landfill, the County provides a drop-off site for waste ($) and a full-service Recycling Center at the Resource Recovery Park, northern landfill, 1400 Baltimore Boulevard, Westminster, MD 21157 and a drop-off site at Hoods Mill Landfill, 7901 Kabik Court, Woodbine, MD 21797 (Effective September 6, 2014 the Hoods Mill Landfill will be open every Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.). No charge for recycling.

The Recycling Center, located at the Resource Recovery Park, northern landfill, accepts all materials recycled through the County's curbside program (Acceptable Recyclable Materials) plus textiles, rigid plastics, grocery and empty clear food bags, CD/DVD cases and disks, car & truck batteries, used motor oil, antifreeze and provides aluminum can reimbursement. Aluminum can reimbursement is offered from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Reimbursement fluctuates with the market value.

The County Landfill also accepts the following for recycling: white goods/scrap metal, yard trim, electronics, kitchen oil and has a Goodwill Donation drop off.
