How communities across Maryland handle their trash has enormous impacts on local air quality, municipal budgets, and contributions to climate change. In the past decade, community-led campaigns in Baltimore City, Prince George's County, and Frederick and Carroll Counties prevented new trash incinerators from being built; but old incinerators in Baltimore City and Montgomery County remain in operation, over the protests of the communities they're located in. And Maryland policies and priorities tip the scales toward trash incineration and other polluters, holding back the zero waste revolution we need to reduce pollution, sequester carbon, and create good green jobs all across the state. We're working to push Maryland away from trash incineration and toward Zero Waste. Join us!
