Landfill Operations

Terry Warhurst
Superintendent of Landfill Operations

The Charles County Sanitary Landfill opened for operation in July 1994 and averages approximately 11,000 transactions per month. In addition to bulk trash disposal, other services available at the landfill include the volume based Tag-a-Bag Program, which enourages recycling (The more you recycle, the more money you save!). 

Vehicles weighing 10,000+ pounds must be exiting the outbound scale by 4:00 p.m.; vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds must be exiting the outbound scale by 5:00 p.m.

Please note:  Curbside trash service is currently contracted on an individual basis in Charles County; residents contact a refuse hauler of their choice. If you belong to a homeowners' association, trash service may be included in your fees.


Patrons are reminded to obey vehicle covering laws, posted speed limits, and the traffic signals stationed at both the inbound and outbound scales.  Children must remain in vehicles at all times throughout the landfill, including at the recycling center.
