Maryland Environmental Service can operate dual stream recycling processing systems. For Montgomery County, MES operates the metal, plastics and glass side of an award-winning dual stream recycling facility that processed 29,501 tons of commingled recyclables in FY 2012. MES also provides recycling tours and educational programs for schoolchildren and citizens at the site. The facility recently expanded recycling efforts through the addition of injection-molded plastics, plastic flowerpots and buckets to its separation process.
