Yard Waste Collection Option

by Fogle's Refuse, LLC (dba Area Refuse Service)

 

Yard Waste (Y/W) collection is available to Brimfield residents upon request to Area Refuse for an additional fee of less than $50 a year.

Note: the yard waste fees are optional and separate from the regular annual collection group fees paid through Brimfield HOA in June. To sign up for the regular trash collection, contact the Brimfield HOA treasurer (click here for more info on regular trash collection). To add the yard waste service, contact Area Refuse at 410-795-7422.

Carroll County's Solid Waste Ordinance 'prohibits' yard waste from being mixed with standard household refuse. Thus yard waste must be segregated & managed separately. By signing up for the optional Yard Waste collection service, Area Refuse crews will pick up yard waste and ONLY yard waste on the pre-set collection dates show above. Once this service has been activated through Area Refuse, and linked to your "ARS" account, you be automatically be enrolled and billed for this service every year thereafter, until you either call Area Refuse or send them written notification of your desire to cancel this "optional service". The add-on yard waste billing is processed in March at a discounted Brimfield HOA Community rate. Call for Area Refuse for the 2018 rate.
