So where will the trash be going?
Harford County will be directing the private businesses that collect trash to dispose of it at a solid waste transfer station located at the Baltimore County Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh, just southwest of the Harford County line. When comparing the distance for a private company to haul trash to the Waste-to-Energy plant to the distance to haul trash to the Eastern Sanitary Landfill the difference is only 2.5 miles. This facility will not be open to County residents. It will only be open to the private trash companies. Harford County residents will continue to be able to drop-off their trash and recyclables at the Harford Waste Disposal Center on Scarboro Road in Street.
