Curbside Collection

The Department of the Environment (DoE) will continue to provide trash, recycling and yard trim collection services on schedule.

Latex paint is NOT hazardous and should NOT be delivered to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) site. Instead, residents should:

  1. Donate leftover latex paint to relatives, friends or neighbors who might need the paint for a project
  2. Allow leftover latex paint to dry and place it in the regular household trash bag for trash disposal.
  3. Use kitty litter or quick paint drying agents that many of the paint stores sell in packets (it is very inexpensive). Once the paint dries, place dried paint can(s) in the regular trash bag for regular trash disposal.

**All trash must be tied and bagged securely.**

Organics Composting Facility

Closed to the public for all services and is open to Commercial/Business customers only

Residents who have County-provided yard trim curbside collections should continue to place their yard trim at the curb by 6 a.m. on Mondays for regular collections. Residents who do not have curbside collection, may drop-off yard trim at the County’s Convenience Drop-off Centers during regular hours of operation.

Convenience Centers

Residents who do not have County-contracted Residential Curbside Collection should use the Residential Convenience Drop-Off Centers for disposal of regular household bagged trash and recyclables. Only residents who DO NOT have curbside pickup service should utilize the convenience centers. Residents who have curbside pick-up should continue to use the curbside service.  

**All Trash Must Be Tied and Bagged Securely**

Bulky Trash

NOTE: See bulky trash service updates posted at top of page for modified drop-off site collections.

Residential drop-off of bulky items at the Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill (BSRSL) is closed (except to District 6 residents as noted on the modified bulky trash drop-off location list). Curbside Bulky trash pick-up remains suspended and residents are asked to store these materials at home until regular service resumes and the BSRSL resumes full operations.
