Frederick County begins construction on convenience center

Construction will begin Monday, November 14th in Gore for Frederick County’s new convenience center.

Construction activity on Sand Mine Road will continue for the next few months.

The project will include the expansion of the facility to improve traffic flow, addition of a trash compactor, and replacement of current collection cans.

These changes will make the site more efficient and eliminate many early closings for weekends or holidays.

Until the work is complete, the location will only accept bagged household trash.

Other materials will be accepted at the regularly operating convenience sites and the landfill.
