Businesses, haulers & recycling processors: you may be recycling and not even realize it.

Do you separate from your trash:
  • professionally shredded paper?
  • cardboard?
  • tires?
  • motor oil?
  • rigid plastics?
  • scrap metal?
  • cooking oil?
  • yard debris?
  • electronics?

Help your county meet its Maryland Recycling Act goal.

Each county is required to annually report to the State of Maryland how much waste was generated, and how much was recycled in each county. Each county is required to meet a minimum recycling rate based upon population. A reporting survey was mailed in January 2018 to all businesses, haulers and processors that operated in Calvert County in 2017.

Download the reporting survey from this webpage for your convenience. Calvert County appreciates your assistance.

If you process recyclable materials, use the Processor Form.
If you haul recyclable materials, use the Hauler Form.
If you own any other type of business, use the Business Form.
If you have questions, call 410-326-0210 or view the FAQ page.
