2018 Trash Permits Available Now

Last Updated on Dec 12, 2017 at 9:16am | Economic Development
The Garrett County Department of Solid Waste & Recycling announces that the 2018 Residential Refuse Permits are now available. The 2018 permits will be valid from the date of purchase through the end of 2018.

The current permits utilize a radio frequency identification system (RFID) that allows the permit to be scanned for validity at each site. This system allows customers to renew the same permit for as long as they own the vehicle that it is originally placed on provided they pay the annual fee. The fee is currently $50.00 per year. The RFID system makes replacing a permit much simpler. If a customer requires a replacement permit due to trading a vehicle, loss of a windshield, or an accident, they can order a replacement with a phone call or e-mail to the Landfill office. The RFID will allow a permit to be switched off electronically so that customers no longer need to return the old permit for a replacement.

Important notes:
--Do not remove your current permit decal from your windshield
--Complete the renewal form and make payment before December 31st, 2017
--Your 2017 permit will be invalid on January 1st, 2018 (you will be required to pay by the
   bag if you have not renewed)
--You will not receive a receipt when you renew unless you request one.
Purchasing online is the fastest way to renew and there is no additional charge for using your credit card online. A new permit purchased online goes in the mail to you the next business day and renewals are instantly updated. Sign into Citizen Connect at

Residents can purchase their 2018 permit by mail or in person at the Landfill on Oakland Sang Run Road or the Garrett County tax office. The current fee is $50.00 and payment at either location can be made using cash, check, or money order.

Applications are available at all collection sites, online, the Garrett County Courthouse, and the Landfill office.
