Pool Committee Volunteers Needed 2017

At this time, Spring Ridge doesn’t have a formal Pool Committee for the 2017 pool season. The many great volunteers who have donated their time to keep this committee functioning in the past are no longer available to offer their services. We are seeking volunteers who love the pool and like to arrange fun events for our community.  Contact Richard Gemmell at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Frederick County Recycling—Important Update

In a few weeks, Frederick County’s recycling collection hauler will begin enforcing an important rule that has actually been in place, but rarely discussed. The hauler will not longer plastic bags with recyclables in them because the bags tangle at the sorting machine and stops the machine from working.

Co-mingled recycling items should be loose in the blue containers. The hauler is now instructed to only collect recyclable material and leave the rest. If there are plastic bags of recyclables they are instructed to leave them on the ground beside the container. If they leave material behind, please look for a service notice which will note the address and the reason items were not collected.

Please download the Recycling Flyers from www.springridgeonline.com for more details, or you may contact Frederick County Recycling at 301-600-2960 or visit

Yard Waste will continue to be handled and collected as is it is currently.

Free Copier to Donate

The Visitor Center Management Office has an older model Ricoh MP 2510 copier than can be donated to a church or other organization that will put it to good use.  The copier still has some life in it and will serve the new owner well for some time.  If interested, contact the Visitor Center at 301-620-0782 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
