Baltimore County Residential Recycling Rates by Area

You can recycle up to 50% or more of the material you set out for collection.

Residential Recycling Rates (By Percentage)

Recycling rate equals, by weight, single stream recyclables divided by the total of single stream recyclables plus trash.
Yard materials (grass, leaves, small brush) collected separately from trash are not included when calculating recycling rate.
