The Allegany County Commissioners welcome comments from the public on the proposed consolidation of the Flintstone and Little Orleans Residential Refuse and Recycling Sites into one location on MV Smith Road. A brief background of the current and proposed Residential Refuse and Recycling Sites throughout the County is below.
Allegany County currently operates four Residential Refuse and Recycling Sites. The Mountainview Landfill Site is near Frostburg and provides trash disposal and a complete suite of recycling options to residents in western Allegany County. It is open six days per week. The Oldtown, Flintstone and Little Orleans Sites provide trash disposal and some recycling options to residents in eastern Allegany County. These sites are staffed by one Solid Waste Attendant rotating through the Sites and each is open one or two days per week.
Construction of a new Oldtown Residential Refuse and Recycling Site is currently underway. The new Oldtown Site will have ADA-accessible trash disposal with a compactor and ground-level bulk dumpster and a near-complete suite of recycling options.
The County analyzed how to best provide cost-effective, ADA-accessible trash disposal and expanded recycling options to residents in the Flintstone and Little Orleans areas. The analysis considered improvements to the Flintstone Site, improvements to the Little Orleans Site, and a proposed new Site at the County Roads Division MV Smith Road Garage. It was determined that the safest and most cost-effective improvement option is to consolidate the Flintstone and Little Orleans Sites into one new Site on MV Smith Road. The MV Smith Road Site will provide the same level of trash disposal and recycling options as both the new Oldtown Site and the Mountainview Landfill Site. It will be open three days per week to better serve the residents of Allegany County.
