We operate two of the State's largest recycling facilities for glass, plastics and metals and operate a residential recycling program for the Midshore Counties Located on the upper Eastern Shore of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, the Midshore Regional Solid Waste System consists of four planned facilities that will serve the municipal solid waste needs of Talbot, Caroline, Kent and Queen Anne’s Counties for 80 years. This unique partnership is the only regional solid waste management agreement in Maryland. Please contact 1-800-I-Recycle (1-800-473-2925) with recycling questions, concerns or compliments.
