Work Green Howard

Are you a certified Work Green Howard business?
You could be!

Each year, the Maryland Department of the Environment requires Howard County to report recycling activities that take place within the county. All local businesses that generate or process recyclables are urged to report their total waste stream to the Howard County Department of Public Works. Businesses who report will be certified as a Work Green Howard business.

The Work Green Howard program makes the reporting process simple by providing a centralized hub for reporting and comprehensive information regarding materials that count toward the county's recycling rate.

Qualifying as a Work Green Howard business is a great opportunity for recognition in the community. To become a certified Work Green Howard business, all you have to do is report your recycling!

Your help is priceless, and takes just a few minutes.
