Featured Project: Midshore Regional Solid Waste System
Located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, the Midshore Regional Solid Waste System consists of four planned facilities that will serve the municipal solid waste needs of Talbot, Caroline, Kent and Queen Anne’s Counties for 80 years. This unique partnership is the only regional solid waste management agreement in Maryland.

To date, two of the four landfills have been constructed. Maryland Environmental Service owns and operates both of the landfills. Midshore I Regional Solid Waste Facility, located in Talbot County, was the first landfill built, operating for a successful 20-year period from 1991 to 2010. The Midshore II Regional Solid Waste Facility in Caroline County began full-scale commercial operation in January 2011. The site will continue to operate through 2030. The average daily solid waste volume received at Midshore II is 400 tons.
