Single-stream recycling makes curbside recycling at home much easier, but not everything that can be recycled can be put into these bins, as shown in last week’s blog.  Every county across the state of Maryland offers drop-off sites for various types of waste and recycling that can’t be collected in your curbside bin.  Whether you’ve got electronics, yard trimmings, appliances, batteries, tires, large rigid plastics, scrap metal, motor oil or even antifreeze; you can find a home for it at one of the drop-off sites in your county.

Of course not all drop-off sites will take everything.  Utilize the chart at the bottom of this blog to find the drop-off sites closest to you and their specific guidelines.
