Recycling Co-op for small businesses in Silver Spring

Under an arrangement put in place by the County, six Silver Spring businesses will share the costs of hiring a private recycling contractor, allowing the businesses to save money and recycle more. By combining their refuse collection services and adding recycling to their service, it is estimated that each business will save between $38 and $227 a month.

The County will be monitoring the success of the program and already has plans to form additional recycling cooperatives in Wheaton and Bethesda.
