Press Release
Garrett County Ten Year Solid Waste Management Plan
October 31, 2014
 
 
                      The Garrett County Department of Solid Waste & Recycling announces that the Maryland Department of the Environment has approved the Garrett County Ten Year Solid Waste Management plan.
 
                      The next step will be a public hearing, followed by a comment period and then formal adoption by the Board of Garrett County Commissioners.  The majority of the changes to the plan are related to legislation passed by the general assembly and plan amendments that have taken place over the last 10 years.  The public hearing is expected to be scheduled in early December with the comment period concluding at the end of the year.
 
                      Interested citizens are encouraged to review the approved plan on the Garrett County Web-site at  www.garrettcounty.org under the Solid Waste & Recycling tab. Copies are also available for review at Ruth Enlow libraries.
 
                      Citizens may ask questions or give comments on the new plan through written correspondence sent to Garrett County Solid Waste & Recycling, 3118 Oakland Sang Run Road, Oakland Maryland 21550, by e-mail at dwbaker@garrettcounty.org, or by contacting Solid Waste & Recycling Manager, David Baker by phone at 301-387-0322.
