The Maryland Recycling Act (MRA) requires Harford County to recycle at least 35% of the waste generated in the County. Traditionally, Harford County has been a leader in recycling, maintaining one of the highest recycling rates in the state. As of December 2021 (the last year for which figures are available) Harford's recycling rate was 44.87%.
Businesses that recycle material generated in Harford County provide valuable contributions to this rate. Businesses that self-report their recycling amounts assist Harford County in maintaining our recycling rate.
Harford County also seeks to highlight businesses that are recycling through the Partners in Recycling Program and the Recycling and Waste Reduction Awards Program.
