Historic Oakland

When Jim Rouse was planning Columbia he took special pains to preserve some of Columbia's historic buildings such as Dorsey Manor, the stone house at Wilde Lake, the Barn at Oakland Mills, Oliver's Carriage House... and Oakland, one of the oldest buildings in Howard County. Rouse wanted to make sure that the people of Columbia understood that the city had roots that must be cherished and protected. To that end, the Columbia Association undertook the renovation of Oakland, also known as Oakland Manor, in 1986. Through the careful guidance of Michael Trostel, a fellow of the American Institute of Architecture, Oakland's beauty has emerged. Managed by TCCA

April News from Howard County Recycling



In Howard County it’s easy to recycle! Whether you put your recyclables in a blue bin for curbside pickup or take them to Alpha Ridge, County residents are reducing our environmental impact and supporting recycling & reuse programs. In 2016, residents recycled 39,877 tons at the curb (31,031 tons of blue bin material & 8,846 tons of yard trim). At Alpha Ridge, residents recycled 7,244 tons of blue bin items, 744 tons of electronics, over 3,000 mattresses and almost 12 tons of used cooking oil! Sometimes people think recycling is too hard, or doesn’t make a difference, but these numbers show otherwise!

Curbside yard trim collection will resume on April 3rd. 

Household Hazardous Waste days at the Alpha Ridge Landfill will resume on Saturdays ONLY starting April 1.

Good Friday - There will be REGULAR collections on Friday, April 14, 2017. The Alpha Ridge Landfill will be OPEN from 8am to 4pm. County offices will be closed. Which 6 holidays affect collections?

Did you know that we accept oyster shells at the Alpha Ridge Landfill? 2016 was a record breaking year for the Oyster Recovery Partnership! Learn what happens to those oyster shells here
