Residential Trash and Recycling Collection 
The City recently improved our recycling and trash collection program in the following ways:

  1. SIMPLE: Trash collection, recycling collection, and yard waste collection now occur on the SAME night. In other words, one night a week you will set out EVERYTHING. If unsure, click HERE to see the zone maps and FIND your collection calendar.
  2. CONVENIENT: Recyclables (glass, plastic, aluminum, paper, cardboard, etc) can all be placed together in one City-issued recycling container.  There is no need to separate recyclables. 
  3. REWARDING: Want to earn valuable coupons and discounts simply by recycling?  Sign up for the RecycleBank program and start earning points for coupons at local restaurants and businesses... simply by recycling!  Click HERE for more information. 

If you want to dispose of a large item (e.g. a sofa, an appliance, large pieces of furniture, etc.), please contact the Public Works Department at (301) 739-8577 ext. 178 for information on their Bulk Trash Pick-up program.
