ARL - Flood Related Update

Howard County residents bringing storm related construction debris (e.g. drywall, framing, wood molding, carpet, padding, etc.) brick, block, rock or dirt/soil to the Alpha Ridge Landfill must cross the scales. There will be NO CHARGE for residents to dispose of these items through Tuesday, July 3. However, there will be a fee for contractors disposing material at the Alpha Ridge Landfill.

Curbside bulk trash pickup can be scheduled for items such as furniture and other household items destroyed by the storm. Please contact the Bureau of Environmental Services at 410-313-6444 to schedule collection.
