Recycling Program & Schedule
Town of Chesapeake Beach 2014 Recycling Program
NOTE: For more information on Trash Collection, click here.
Disposal of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) -- These long-lived, energy efficient light bulbs are being used more and more in our homes and businesses. One of the few disadvantages of CFLs is that they contain small amounts of mercury, an element known to be harmful to human health and the environment. If you break a CFL, place all the cleaned-up material in a sealed plastic bag and either put it into an outside trash container for the next normal trash collection or, if convenient, take it to the Mt. Hope Community (Recycling) Center (104 Pushaw Station Rd.,Sunderland, MD) where they accept CFLS year round. Light bulbs of any sort are not acceptable items for recycling with the Town's Recycling contractor.
If you would like a receptacle for your recycling material, please complete the simple online form. Please allow at least TWO WEEKS for delivery of your container. To access the online form -- click here .
Do Not Bag Recycle -- it will get treated as trash if in a bag.
Once we receive your form, Public Works personnel will deliver a container to your home. Again, we encourage everyone to recycle and join us in the program. See table below for specific guidelines and instructions regarding what materials may be recycled, preparation for recycling and what items are unacceptable. Thank you in advance for participating in this very worthwhile program!
Reminder -- From Labor Day until Memorial Day recycle pickup will occur EVERY OTHER WEEK (see schedule on right).
