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 trim, 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.
Prince George's is expanding its free Curbside Composting program - PGC Composts! By the end of 2023, all residents receiving County-provided trash and recycling services can help protect our environment and keep valuable materials out of our landfill by participating.
