Effective August 1, 2023, Tidewater Fibre Corporation, the County’s recycling vendor, will cease servicing the Eastern Shore.

After August 1st, we will be utilizing Shore Waste of Salisbury, Maryland. Shore Waste works in cooperation with Eagle Recycling (also in Salisbury) for acceptance of our single-stream recycling products, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GLASS. Glass is NOT acceptable by the vendor.

Understanding that glass makes up a significant portion of our recycling stream, a separate container will be placed at each convenience center for glass while we continue our efforts to find a vendor who will accept glass products.
Please do not put glass into the recycling bins. It contaminates the entire load and will cause the load to be rejected by the recycling vendor.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


If you are planning to do work on or near the water by or within beaches or dunes, or near or in wetlands, call the Planning Permitting and Enforcement Department at (757) 678-0443 before starting any work to obtain required permits.

Work without a permit within the Wetlands Board Jurisdiction may result in a violation with fines up to $10,000 for the contractor and the property owner.
