How is the law enforced?

An Inspector from Prince George’s County Resource Recovery Division may visit your facility to conduct a compliance investigation.  A lack of signage or lack of any required recycling containers, failure to submit the required recycling plan or annual report, or other violations may result in a non-compliance citation.  Local municipal enforcement officials may also visit businesses or properties within their jurisdiction to ensure compliance.
