From Harford County government:
The Harford County Waste Disposal Center under the administration of County Executive Barry Glassman will extend its hours of operation until 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays from March 17 through June 16, 2016, to improve service and reduce Saturday traffic at the landfill. The extended Thursday hours are only for residential customers disposing of household waste or recycling at the homeowner drop-off area of the facility located in Street, Md. Operating hours on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday will remain from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
“I am pleased that my administration is able to offer extended service hours for the convenience of our citizens without increasing fees,” said County Executive Glassman. “This action is made possible thanks to our decision to outsource environmental service operations to Maryland Environmental Service, an independent state agency with a track record of improving efficiencies and customer service.”
Maryland Environmental Service (MES) received permission from the Maryland Department of the Environment to expand hours on Thursdays for three months in order to relieve congestion on Saturdays. If successful, MES will request a permit modification to permanently expand operating hours at the landfill.
Operating hours for Harford County’s mulch and compost facility and the commercial waste disposal will not change, remaining Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
