Feed the Green Bin!
Good news! This October, we will expand green bin collection into more areas of Columbia! Visit FeedTheGreenBig.org for details about what's accepted and to see if you're in the collection area. Residents in the new area have received sign-up postcards in their mail.
Howard County residents can bring up to 3 bags or boxes of paper to be shredded on-site at Meadowbrook Park & Ride (exit 1A off of Route 100). The event is Saturday, October 18th from 9am to 1pm and will be held rain or shine. Really!? These things have been found in paper shredding! Learn more on our Paper Shredding website.
