Frederick County offers drop-off collection of household refuse and recyclables for residents at no charge. There are eleven citizens' convenience sites located throughout the county. Bagged household waste may be disposed of at all locations, while large, bulky items must be taken directly to the landfill citizens' center. These items include, but are not limited to, major and small household appliances, a/c units, dehumidifiers, lawn equipment with fluids removed, auto batteries, propane tanks, indoor and outdoor furniture, shelving, mattresses, box springs, remodeling waste such as lumber, pipes, carpeting and yard debris.
Sites are staffed and have posted hours of operation. The landfill center conforms to regional landfill hours.

Through a shared agreement, Clarke residents may also utilize the convenience sites located at Double Toll Gate, Stephenson and Greenwood Road.
