Recycling

95% of eli­gi­ble Howard County res­i­dents recy­cle approx­i­mately 110 tons of mate­r­ial at the curb every day.

Howard County col­lects about 12,000 tons of yard trim for recy­cling every year.

Since June 2012, 14 tons of Sty­ro­foam have been recy­cled at Alpha Ridge Landfill.

County res­i­dents diverted over 200 mat­tresses per month at Alpha Ridge Land­fill through the new mat­tress recy­cling program.
