  RECYCLING MAKES GOOD BUSINESS
Why Recycle?
By recycling, you send a message to your customers and your employees that your business cares about the community.  No Anne Arundel County business is too big or too small to start recycling!
Potential Cost Savings
Implementing a recycling program at your business will reduce the amount of trash being placed in your dumpster.  Two ways you can potentially reduce your costs are to reduce collection frequency and decrease dumpster size.  In certain cases, you may earn revenue from recycled materials.
Preserve Natural Resources
Recycling conserves natural resources, saves money and energy and reduces greenhouse gases.
How Can Businesses Recycle?
Options for businesses to recycle in Anne Arundel County:
Community Drop-off Sites
Businesses in Anne Arundel County can drop of an unlimited amount of paper, plastic, metal and glass at any of our Recycling Centers.  Business may also bring unlimited amounts of cardboard, free of charge, to the Millersville Landfill Paper Recovery Facility located at the Millersville Landfill.  Click here to find locations of our facilities
Note: Proof that the recycling was generated from a business in Anne Arundel County is required (commercial vehicle registered in Anne Arundel County or a vehicle with commercial logos.) 
Curbside Recycling Only Collection at Your Business
A new program to help small businesses recycle was established in July 2008.  If your business is interested in having recycling only curbside collection, contact the Recycling Division at 410-222-7951 to discuss your collection options and details of the County‚Äôs Small Business Recycling Program.
Private Hauler Recycling Collection
Some businesses may find it in their best interests to obtain recycling services from a private hauler. Contact your current trash hauler to setup a recycling program as most can also provide recycling services.  If your current refuse hauler cannot provide recycling services contact the Anne Arundel County Recycling Division for a list of private haulers that offer recycling services or visit www.MDRecycles.org.
Contact a Business Specializing in Recycling Collections
There are some businesses that just provide recycling services (not trash collection). Some companies only have drop-off capabilities, while others offer on-site collection.  Visit www.MDRecycles.org for more information.
Services Available to Commercial Customers
Commercial Customers are welcome at the Millersville Landfill and Resource Recovery Facility. Waste Management Services provides a comprehensive system of municipal solid waste collection, recycling, disposal, and related services to the citizens, businesses, and institutions of Anne Arundel County. The County does not accept any material generated outside of Anne Arundel County.
We can only accept trash generated in Anne Arundel County, and verify residency by checking driver's licenses. Commercially marked or registered vehicles must use the Millersville landfill and are subject to a tipping fee charged by the ton. Vehicle registration will be checked upon entrance.
The Millersville Landfill and Resource Recovery Facility is the only facility equipped to accept payment, so customers who must pay are directed there. For the convenience of all of our customers, stickers can be obtained to avoid future driver's license and registration checks.
However, businesses may drop off an unlimited amount of paper, plastic, metal, and glass at the Southern Recycling CenterNorthern Recycling Center or Central Recycling Center at no charge.
Customers that will be charged a per ton fee based on the Fee Schedule include:
  • Any user delivering trash in a commercially registered vehicle or with permanent or detachable commercial logos or markings
  • Anyone delivering trash with a:
    • Double axle vehicle
    • Rental truck or trailer
    • Dump truck
    • Flatbed truck
    • Box truck
  • Anyone wanting to dispose of a boat, camper, or mobile home
All loads are subject to inspection. For quick and safe disposal, please sort your items before arriving since you may have to unload at different sections of the facility. Load similar items in the same spot in your vehicle for ease of unloading. If you have large quantities of several types of materials, consider bringing only one material per trip.
