Montgomery County is a leader in solid waste management in the nation. While the County has achieved an overall recycling rate of 55 percent and a waste diversion rate of 60 percent (residential and business), we are always looking for ways to increase our recycling achievements. We are looking for your input on how to do that as part of our “Aiming for Zero Waste” plan.  This plan will serve as the blueprint for the sustainable management of waste, including collection, processing and disposal of waste in the County.

Have your say in the future of waste management in Montgomery County and help us on our path forward to zero waste.

Survey is now closed!
