Where does our trash go?

Harford County directs the private businesses that collect trash to dispose of it at a solid waste transfer station located at the Baltimore County Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh, just southwest of the Harford County line. This facility will not be open to county residents. It is only be open to the private trash companies. Harford County residents can drop-off their trash and recyclables at the Harford Waste Disposal Center on Scarboro Road in Street. Read more about Harford County's Solid Waste Management Plan.
