Trash & Recycling

Caroline County is home to the regional landfill. The four Midshore counties have signed an agreement where each county is responsible for taking a 20-year “turn” hosting the landfill. It is currently Caroline County’s turn, making access to the landfill easier for our residents and the cost of trash hauling lower for our residents.
