Special recycling events are coordinated with the Allegany County Recycling Office and Solid Waste Management Board. These events include tire recycling, electronics recycling, household hazardous waste collections, etc... These special events are not held on a regular basis, so the City will be providing information here to be inform to Cumberland residents. Additionally, as events are scheduled they will be added to Notify Me and the Main Calendar. For more information please contact the City's Environmental Specialist at 301-759-6604.
