Recycling Facility & Convenience Centers
Wicomico County currently owns and operates the Newland Park Landfill (NPLF) located on Brick Kiln Road, northwest of the city of Salisbury. The site covers approximately 125 acres. The facility on a daily average processes 290 tons of solid waste along with a regional recycling facility that processes recyclable materials for end users.
In addition, it also operates 11 convenience centers, (that accept recyclables) and nine recycling convenience drop-off centers. Convenience centers are for the use of homeowners to dispose of their household garbage and recyclables. A permit is required for the disposal of household garbage, whereas no permit is required to deposit recyclable materials in our recycling containers located in our convenience center drop-off stations. Permits are issued each fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
