Addition to Oil Filter Recycling Program

Last Updated on Apr 5, 2013 at 9:44am | Solid Waste and Recycling

In Garrett County, the Department of Solid Waste & Recycling operates seven refuse and recycling sites. At this time, oil and anti-freeze is collected at six of the sites.

Recently, Garrett County residents and businesses were asked to participate in a new Pilot Recycling Program: Used Oil Filters.

After a few months, we were able to report to the Maryland Environmental Service (MES) who provide containers and pick-ups for the program, that Garrett County was ready to continue adding new refuse & recycling sites to the recycling program.

Used oil filters are accepted for recycling during the hours of Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday 12:00 Noon – 6:00 p.m., at the Webers Refuse & Recycling site located at 10180 Garrett Highway, Oakland, Maryland 21550; Kings Run site at 1631 Kings Run Road, Oakland, MD 21550; Grantsville site at 13168 National Pike, Grantsville, MD 21536; and at the Bumble Bee Refuse & Recycling site at 1367 Bumble Bee Road, Accident, MD  21520.

Additionally, transmission filters may be collected with the oil filters and deposited in the same container at the Refuse & Recycling sites.  However, DO NOT mix fuel filters in with these items.

Used oil filter recycling is available to all Garrett County residents and businesses free-of-charge.  The collection containers for the filters are under the shelter with the oil and Anti-freeze collection containers.  If you require assistance, please ask a site attendant. 

A residential disposal permit is not required to participate in this program or any other recycling program in Garrett County.
