Resource Recovery Division
A division of the Department of the Environment (DoE), the mission of the Resource Recovery Division is to manage the collection, recycling, reduction and disposal of municipal solid waste in an efficient, cost-effective and safe manner, while complying with all Federal, State and local regulatory requirements.
The Resource Recovery Division works to improve our environment by providing recycling and the effective management of trash, yard waste, household hazardous waste and bulky materials. The county is fulfilling its goals of protecting our natural resources while promoting a better quality of life for our community by ensuring cleaner water and air quality.
CURRENT STATUS of waste collections for Monday, February 22
Due to icy road conditions persisting into the weekend, some routes receiving regular Thursday and Friday trash/recycling collections, will not be able to be serviced. If your trash or recycling was not collected by Saturday, February 20th, the Department asks residents to bring their carts in.
Please be aware that collections will be serviced on your next regularly scheduled collection day. We apologize for this inconvenience, as we work through these most adverse weather conditions.
Missed bulky collections will be picked up by Tuesday, February 23rd. The Department asks that residents keep their bulky items at the curb, if allowed by their homeowner’s association (HOA).
- Repurpose your old trash can by using it as a yard trim can or extra recycling can (mark with an "X" or word "Recycling")
- Deliver (bring) your old can to one of the two convenience centers for the Prince George's County Public Schools to repurpose and/or for the County to recycle as rigid plastics or scrap metal. The convenience centers are Brown Station Road Public container Pad and Recycling Area and Missouri Avenue Solid Waste Acceptance and Recycling Center.
- Set the can upside down on your trash collection day and the trash hauler will collect the old trash can which will be disposed of as trash.
