Recycling & Solid Waste
The Allegany County Government Recycling & Solid Waste Department works to provide County residents with options for self-service recycling and trash service. Through partnerships with other area solid waste companies, residents have numerous locations available for recycling and trash drop off. Allegany County does not provide pick-up options for these services.
The Allegany County Recycling Coordinator is pleased to speak with and make presentations to schools, community organizations, etc. To inquire about this service, contact our Recycling Coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students at Mountain Ridge High School, under the leadership or Mr. Tom Kozikowski, teamed up to create recycling videos in Fall 2023. We want to thank them for their efforts and promotion of Recycling in Allegany County.
