Harford, Baltimore Counties Enter Into An Agreement For Trash Collection

In response to the closure of the Waste-to-Energy Facility at Aberdeen Proving Ground and another landfill in the area nearing capacity, Harford and Baltimore Counties have entered into an agreement for trash collection that will benefit residents in both counties.

As reported by the Baltimore Sun (limited free views available):

Beginning next year, a Baltimore County contractor will take Harford County paper, plastic and other recyclables to a single-stream recycling facility in Cockeysville, which could generate $60,000 a month for Baltimore County. And in 2016, Harford County trash collectors will deliver garbage to Baltimore County’s Eastern Sanitary Landfill near White Marsh, where it will then be shipped to an out-of-state landfill.
