Baltimore County just got a little Greener!

Baltimore County is the newest municipality to join COA's portfolio.  The long term project was granted to COA in late 2015.   The Recycling program took years of educating and continued planning for both COA and Baltimore County. 


Baltimore County is a region that is located in the northern part of Maryland.  It is the home to 823,015 people and it is the third most populous county in the State.  The City of Baltimore is not to be confused to be in Baltimore County's jurisdiction. 


Baltimore County is a vibrant community that consists of 214 miles of waterfront, four wineries, farmers markets, steeplechase races and museums.  There are endless things to keep busy in the county. 



With a population of that scale, COA plans to install upwards of 500 Recycling Stations throughout the County.  The green recycling stations are designed to blend into the County's lively surroundings and to help divert recyclables from the local landfills.  The 3 stream units are outfitted to accommodate Paper, Bottles and Cans and Trash.  Installation of the recycling stations will take part in stages with the initial 25 units installed in the spring of 2016. 


COA will maintain, repair and handle the collection on these bins at absolutely no cost to the County.  Baltimore County's cost free right of way recycling program is funded by the sign revenue generated from the green recycling stations.  The local small businesses put their signs on the recycling stations so the passing motorist will read their messages.  So far the response has been positive with most of the units already under contract.
