In order to have as much work time as possible, recycling crews will begin to pick up materials two hours earlier than the normal collection start time.
Where possible, residents are also asked to remove empty carts from the roadside once recyclables have been picked up; this will assist road crews with snow removal efforts.
Please be aware that weather conditions may cause some streets to be inaccessible for recycling collection trucks; drivers will attempt to collect wherever possible. If collections must be suspended or canceled due to weather conditions, collections will resume Sunday December 30, if necessary to complete all routes.
Further information and updates on the status of the curbside recycling collection can be obtained by visiting the Office of Recycling’s website at: www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/recycle or by calling 301-600-2960 to hear regularly updated voice recordings.
