Clear the Curb Waste Collection Programs


Clear the Curb

Prince George's County Clear the Curb Waste Collection Programs modernize and streamline residential services for more than 175,000 residents. County residents who are eligible to participate in our waste collection programs receive ONE free, wheeled trash, recycling, and organics cart to help ensure items are properly disposed of.

Bulky Trash Collection - NEW!

If you receive County trash and recycling services, residents can now put out up to two items of regular bulky trash, with your regular trash collection - no appointment needed! Scrap tires and white goods including refrigerators, air conditioners, washers, dryers, and other appliances, will still need to be scheduled for pickup through PGC311. See all the details here.

Curbside Food Scraps Collection (Composting) - NEW!

Residents that opted into the most recent enrollment period can now get rid of their food scraps on Monday! Read more about the curbside collection of yard trim, food scraps, and organics here.
