If you wish to dispose of household bags of refuse at one of the Garrett County refuse & recycling sites in a vehicle that does not have a refuse permit affixed to it, you may purchase individual bag stickers. The cost is $0.50 per sticker and may be purchased in any quantity. Stickers are available by mail, at any of the seven refuse & recycling sites in Garrett County (including the Landfill), and at the local retail businesses listed above/below. Two stickers allow you to dispose of one 13-gallon trash bag ($1.00).
