Presentations and Tours

Schedule a recycling presentation. A Recycling Coordinator will discuss the ins and outs of recycling, as well as provide an inside look at what happens to all those things we recycle. Here's the video if you'd like to check it out! Call 410-313-6444 to schedule or fill out this form.

For schools, we offer assembly style presentations, grade-by-grade presentations and short 5-minute cafeteria presentations to get the students thinking about what they have in their lunches that can be recycled everyday. The most efficient setup for schools is 2 assembly-style presentations with follow-up lunchroom presentations to jump start the recycling program and get everyone on board.

WMRA Elkridge Recycling Processor

Tour the Waste Management Recycle America located at 7175 Kit Kat Road in Elkridge. Please note this tour is only available for adults 18 and older. This tour lasts about an hour. Tours are scheduled as requested and must be groups of at least 6, with a maximum of 10. If you are not able to form a group, you can be added to an existing tour. Call 410-313-6444 for a tour schedule.

Alpha Ridge Landfill Tour

Schedule a tour of Alpha Ridge Landfill. A Recycling Coordinator will guide your group around Alpha Ridge Landfill Residents' Convenience Area to discuss what is collected and what happens to all those items. Many things are reused or recycled, but trash is collected too. The group may also tour the Compost Demo Area and Transfer Building. This tour is great for scout groups trying to earn badges/patches. Did you know most of Howard County's trash is exported to a landfill in VA? Call 410-313-6444 to schedule.

Compost Facility at The Alpha Ridge Landfill

Howard County has constructed a state of the art facility to produce quality compost. More information about this new facility can be found on the Compost facility webpage.

We all have questions about what to do with certain items. Items we hear a lot are milk cartons, plastic bags, coffee pods, cooking oil, Styrofoam and take-out containers.

Click and move the items to the correct place in our updated game to see what actually goes in your recycling bin. Learn about the other outlets we have to reduce, reuse and recycle your stuff.

There have been some changes to our curbside program - test your skills! Print your certificate and bring it to our main office (9801 Broken Land Parkway) to receive a FREE indoor recycling collection container (Limit one per household, while supplies last).
