Find Help for Calvert County Youth in Your Closet

The Calvert County Solid Waste Division asks residents to go through their closet to support the youth drug and violence-free D.A.R.E. program. The contracted recycling vendor will donate $900.00 to the county's D.A.R.E. program for nine additional textile recycling containers. Beyond the seven Customer Convenience Centers, additional D.A.R.E. textile recycling containers are outside at these public facilities.

Business participation helps meet Maryland Recycling Act goals.

All counties in Maryland are required to report how much waste had been recycled in the previous calendar year. To get these quantities, the Solid Waste Division sends out an annual Business Recycling Reporting Survey to all active businesses which operate in Calvert County. No matter if it's shredded paper, cardboard, scrap metal, used cooking oil, tires, motor oil, textiles or many other materials, sharing how much you don't send to a landfill or incinerator helps meet the goal.

  • If you are a business that sorts and readies recyclable materials for market, use the    Processor Form.

  •  If you are a business that transports recyclable materials, use the Hauler Form.
