10 Year Solid Waste Plan

Prince George’s County, although highly urbanized in certain locations, is not as densely populated as a city. As a result, the issues related to solid waste management are highly diversified and challenging. The services presently provided to county residents to meet solid waste disposal needs are adequate. However, during this Planning Period, several changes are anticipated. The county will be moving from landfilling as the primary solid waste management practice, to designing and building a state of the art Solid Waste Transfer Station that will operate as the primary facility for receiving and transferring the County’s Municipal Solid Waste. This plan is intended to be a guide and will allow steps to be taken toward the continuous development of an up-to-date solid waste management program.
