recycling

Town of Ocean City has no all-encompassing recycling program. However, the town does collect white goods such as refrigerators and washing machines, and it also maintains a used oil and anti-freeze collection program. 

(July 5, 2019) The Town of Ocean City has not had an all-encompassing recycling program since 2010. Public Works Director Hal Adkins said the program was dropped to save the town money — approximately $500,000 a year. 

If that number has been consistent over the last nine years, that would mean that resort government has been able to save approximately $4.5 million. 

Almost 90 percent of Ocean City’s trash is sent to the Covanta incinerator in Chester, Pennsylvania.

However, the city does still recycle white goods, such as refrigerators and washing machines, and it maintains a used oil and anti-freeze recycling drop off program.
