Recycling Center Hours in Thurmont

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.
