Cecil County's Recycling & Environmental Programs are managed by the Department of Public Works Solid Waste Management Division These programs consist of recycling, source reduction, and special waste programs. Our recycling program was instituted in 1990 after the Maryland Recycling Act was passed which requires all Maryland Counties to recycle a specified amount of their waste.

These programs save valuable landfill space, remove contaminants from the waste stream, generate revenue to support our programs, and assist our Department of Public Works to fulfill its mission to contribute to the health, safety, and quality of life of Cecil County residents.
