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.

    Recycling Presentation

      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.
