Recycling in the Workplace

Recycling Works in Frederick County


Solid waste disposal is not a fixed cost but a manageable expense...which means, "going green" just might save some green on your business's bottom line. At the Frederick County transfer station and landfill, site users pay significantly less per ton to process recyclable materials than trash. When you think of all the things a business could recycle, a cost reduction for waste management could be attained by actively managing the business waste stream. And many local businesses are doing just that- recycling more, wasting less and saving money in the process!
Go Green, Save Green
