Oppose the Frederick/Carroll County Waste to Energy Facility

We the undersigned hereby affirm our opposition to the Frederick /Carroll County Waste-to-Energy Incinerator located at the McKinney Industrial Park in Frederick, MD. This project, if completed, will not only dirty the air, soil, and water that serve as the backbone for our highly productive farmland, pastures, and waterways, but also will cause irreversible impacts to the health of our growing community.

This incinerator will not only cost the taxpayers of Frederick County 100’s of millions annually over the next 30 years, but it will also have a negative impact on housing prices, local markets and restaurants that rely on “organic” farming, and businesses that depend on tourism driven by Frederick County’s vibrant outdoor natural resources and the deep history of the Monocacy National Battlefield.

We urge Frederick County to pursue cleaner alternatives that prevent waste and create local jobs and revenues through reuse, recycling, composting and other strategies.

Sign below by May 15, 2013. A letter containing the total # of signatures will be sent to the Maryland Department of Environment prior to their May 20th public comment deadline.

NOTE: After signing, you will receive a request to donate to this web service. If you are not interested in donating, please just close the window. Your signature will be recorded.

Thank you!




  • nnie Alexander Keep the incinerator out of Frederick, MD. Protect the health of our children. It is too close to public schools.

  • Sharon Thomas Dear County Commissioners of Frederick County,

    Please reconsider and do not sign financial agreements to proceed with building an incinerator in Frederick County. A large problem such as the amount of garbage we generate will not be solved through one pathway. Also, it is counter-intuitive to believe that starting a business that relies on lots of trash to keep solvent financially will enhance our community.

    Please take the opportunity of Carroll County backing out of their financial commitment to pause and focus on other ways that can add up to reducing our landfill needs.

  • Anna Desimon If the incinerator is built, I am absolutely positive that more and more people will move out of Fredrick county.
