This week is Bulk Pick-Up! Collections will be on the same day as normal garbage collections.
We encourage "picking": the reuse or recycling of household items. But, it is NOT OK to open garbage bags and leave trash strewn about. It's not fair to our City workers that have to clean up the mess and if we catch anyone doing so, they'll be charged with littering (Residents: If you see this happening, please call the Police Department at 301-689-3000 so an officer can respond).
The Bulk Pickup is provided for only City residential garbage customers. Commercial or dumpster customers are not eligible.
The Street Department will NOT PICK UP appliances with Freon-based refrigerants, tires, batteries, televisions or computer monitors with “picture tubes”, paint or other chemicals or hazardous materials.
