Recycling & Solid Waste


  1. There are no alerts at this time.


The Allegany County Government Recycling & Solid Waste Department works to provide County residents with options for self-service recycling and trash service. Through partnerships with other area solid waste companies, residents have numerous locations available for recycling and trash drop off.  Allegany County does not provide pick-up options for these services. 

The Allegany County Recycling Coordinator is pleased to speak with and make presentations to schools, community organizations, etc. To inquire about this service, contact our Recycling Coordinator via email at
