Important Notice Regarding Recyclables Collection

Have your recyclables been left behind?

The Town of Elkton’s waste hauler recently updated their collection procedures, and this important information is being shared with our residents.

Our waste hauler operates under regulations established by the Cecil County Landfill. These regulations are in place to ensure that the limited space in the landfill is being used as efficiently as possible.

Materials such as yard waste and plastic bags can clog the equipment that processes recyclables, which can potentially damage the equipment and lead to injuries.

Additionally, when non-compatible materials are placed with recyclables, the entire load must be placed in the landfill, leading to higher costs and defeating the purpose of recycling.

Please be mindful to keep municipal waste and plastic bags out of your recyclable materials. Our waste hauler cannot take contaminated recyclables.
