The county will cut Sunday hours at the Millersville Landfill and Glen Burnie and Millersville convenience centers, in an effort to save money in overtime expenses and fuel.
The county expects to save more than $425,000, County Executive John R. Leopold announced last week.
"Tough fiscal times dictate that we take every action possible to trim expenses without eliminating essential services," Leopold said in a statement. "While this may cause some inconvenience, it saves money and also decreases harmful vehicle emissions."
Reducing the number of Sunday hours is not expected to increase Saturday traffic at the centers, as the county has not seen a Saturday increase during the winter months, when Sunday service has already been cut, according to the county.
The facilities will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
