New Clarke Waste Disposal Facility Opens This Week

8 January 2019 Clarke County News

Clarke residents in the northeastern part of the county who have been carrying their household waste 25 miles or more to Frederick County facilities will now have a closer option.

Originally set to open in fall of 2018, record-breaking rainfall throughout the summer and fall greatly delayed construction of the new facility in Clarke. At the end of this week, however, the Clarke County Convenience Center at 90 Quarry Road will officially open. Starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, January 12th, the public will be able to bring their bagged household trash there for disposal, and can recycle paper, cardboard, aluminum, and #1 and #2 plastics as well. Initially, convenience center hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays. If demand is great enough, the county will revise the schedule, opening the facility on one or two weekdays.

Clarke residents in the Buckmarsh and Millwood districts are expected to benefit the most from the new facility. In a release, County Supervisor David Weiss said “We know it’s been a high priority for our constituents for many years, and we’re glad it’s come to fruition.”
