Contact your recycling vendor and processor to determine what materials generated by your business can be collected single-stream.
County Legislation (CB-12-2018) states that all Prince George’s County business owners, tenants, or operators of commercial and industrial properties, including but not limited to offices, stores, hotels, motels, gas stations, restaurants, factories, processing plants, and manufacturing enterprises, shall provide at least equally sized and equally convenient recycling containers to accompany each trash container on the interior and exterior of the property, including along storefronts.
For more information, contact the Department of the Environment, Recycling Section, Inspection Unit at 301-883-3635.
If you don't already have one, establish a recycling program at your business or multi-tenant facility. Setting up a program is easy and we can help!
If you already have a recycling program, submit a copy of your Maryland Recycling Act (MRA) Recycling Tonnage Report to the Department of the Environment Recycling Section. Your recycling hauler may also submit the report on your behalf with your business/property name and address listed on the report.
Businesses play an important role in Prince George's County's Recycling Program. Approximately one-half of the county's solid waste stream is produced by the business sector. Businesses also account for 2/3 of the county's current recycling rate.
All businesses can recycle. The Department of the Environment Recycling Section will assist your business in implementing a successful recycling program.
