Important news on plastic bags and other plastic film products
The Calvert County Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Division recommends residents to reuse and reduce the usage of disposable plastic bags as the County’s current contractor can no longer recycle plastic film products (grocery bags, shrink wrap, bubble wrap, etc.) due to market changes. Residents may recycle plastic grocery bags at local stores offering plastic bag recycling. Residents may dispose of plastic film products in separate, designated containers at Calvert County Convenience Centers. Plastic film products cannot be commingled with glass or plastic bottles and metal cans at convenience centers.
