Effective on September 1, 2020, the recycling dumpster, as well as the oil recycling station will both be open in their new location next to the Thurmont Regional Library, adjacent to the Town of Thurmont Electric Substation at 70 East Moser Road. To access the recycling center follow the roadway to the right of the library and then turn right into the gravel lot.
