2023 Refuse Site Permits

The Garrett County Department of Solid Waste & Recycling announces that the 2023 Residential Refuse Permits will be available beginning October 1st, 2022. The 2023 permits will be valid from the date of purchase through the end of 2023.
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 $75.00 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 prior to December 31, 2022.
Your 2022 permit expires on December 31, 2022 (you will be required to pay-by-the bag if you have not renewed by January 1). **You will NOT receive a receipt when paying by mail 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. To order your permit after October 1, sign into payments at .
Residents can purchase their 2023 permits by mail or in person at the Landfill located on Oakland Sang Run Road.  The current fee is $75.00 per vehicle and payment at the landfill location can be made using cash, check (made payable to GCSW), debit or credit card, or money order.
Applications are NOT mailed out but will be available at all refuse & recycling sites, online, and at the Landfill office.
Purchasing early will help customers avoid lines and delays at the end of the year. If you need more information or have questions please contact the Solid Waste & Recycling office at: 301-387-0322.
