Recycling Center Hours


Effective on September 1, 2020, the recycling dumpster, as well as the oil recycling station will both be open in their new location next to the Thurmont Regional Library, adjacent to the Town of Thurmont Electric Substation at 70 East Moser Road.  To access the recycling center follow the roadway to the right of the library and then turn right into the gravel lot.  This is the same general location where yard waste dropoff is located each month so all recycling opportunities will now be in the same location.  Signs will be in place to provide direction to drivers.  


**EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2015 ALL CURBSIDE GRASS CLIPPINGS MUST BE IN PAPER YARD WASTE BAGS.**
Grass clipping pickup at curbside will begin on Monday, April 20th.  Bagged grass clippings need to be at the curb by 6 a.m. on Mondays.  No animal feces and no bags over 40lbs.   
With mowing season here please see  2015 Yard Maintenance information from our Code Enforcement Officer.
