Bulk Pickup Form (Print out and drop off in the night deposit box at the Town Office)

During this already difficult time of COVID19, everyone is staying home, per the Governors March 30th order. Since then, we have seen a dramatic increase in trash collection, and we need your help to reduce the overage back to levels contracted with our trash collection contractor.

 

-       A maximum of 128 gallon per residence will be collected. This is equal to four 32 gallon or two 64-gallon wheeled waste containers.

-       Only place household waste in the trash.

-       Separate and collect all newspaper and cardboard. Call 410-479-2050 for (free) special collections pickup.

-       Recycle as much as you can. The county’s Holly Road site and the recycling bins behind the YMCA/Goodwill at the Denton Plaza accepts glass, paper, cardboard, metal cans, etc. Please utilize this free drop off center.

 

In addition, - Approved bulk items (list can be found on the Town website under the Public Works tab) will be collected Wednesdays with the purchase of a pick-up ticket. The Town now has a new Special Collections/Bulk Pick-Up form that can be printed from the town website and mailed, dropped off at the drive thru during business hours, or deposited in the night drop box located on the Second Street side of the Town Office, along with the payment of $5 per item.

Trash Can Cleanliness...
The Denton Public Works Department would like to ask everyone to wash their hands after handling or moving their trash cans.

Trash haulers touch over 3,000 cans during their trash runs. To avoid unwanted germs, please wash your hands after moving your trash can. 

Covid 19 

 

Denton Public Works remains commited to providing essential services to our citizens including uninterrupted water and sewer services. In the event of an emergency, contact our office at 410-479-5446 or the Town Office at 410-479-2050. We will continue to update our website as information is provided to us. 

We are working in cooperation with Caroline County Emergency Operations Center to provide our citizens with up to date information as it pertains to Covid 19. Please visit the Caroline County EOC website for important facts and news at  www.carolinecovid19.org

 

During this very trying time, the Town and Trash Contractor are asking for your cooperation to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Please follow the existing

Town Codes for Trash collection or your trash may not be collected until the

violation is resolved.  

 

Your container will be tagged if the contractor determines it is unsafe or is in violation.

 

The trash contractor will not collect any containers that contain loose, un-bagged trash/refuse due to risk of infectious or disease-bearing materials.

 

These Codes will be strictly enforced for the safety of the collection crews.

REMINDERS

 FLUSHABLE WIPES


 Although the label says these are flushable, that doesn't make them biodegradable. These have been known to not only cause massive clogs in sewer mains and sewer pumping stations, they also clog inside your pipes which will cost a fortune in plumbing bills and potential fines. These "flushable" wipes should not be flushed and should be disposed in a trash can along with paper towels, plastics, and anything other than normal tissue paper. 


 In addition, in these times of the Covid 19 outbreak, our staff should not have to be exposed to a clog due to improper materials being flushed. Our staff has to come in direct contact with contaminated tools, and sewer debris whenever a clog occurs which obviously is a major concern for disease exposure. We implore you to take extra steps to prevent sewer clogs not only during the Covid 19 situation, but also moving forward. We thank you in advance for your consideration 

 

 

STORM WATER 

 

 

     Storm Water control is a big issue all over the state of Maryland. The Town of Denton is becoming a big part of it with the storm water discharging in the Choptank river.

     Per Denton Town Code Chapter 76, Section 4, Unlawful activities Paragraph B - No person shall sweep into or deposit in any gutter, drainage swale, street or other pubic place within the Town the accumulation of litter from any public or private sidewalk or driveway. Persons owning or occupying property shall keep the sidewalk in front of their premises free of litter. Paragraph C - It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to throw, dump, or deposit any trash, junk, or other refuse on any highway, or to perform any act which constitutes a violation of the State of Maryland's Vehicle Laws or Town of Denton laws relative to putting trash, glass and other prohibited substances on highways. The Violation for this can be up to $1000.00 fine for each infraction or imprisonment for no more than 30 days.
