Curbside Collection

Residents must place containers curbside by 6 a.m. on the day of collection. Collections begin as early as 6 a.m. and continue until 8 p.m.

TRASH

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

Latex paint is NOT hazardous and should NOT be delivered to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) site. Learn how to dispose of properly by clicking here. 

RECYCLING

** Plastic bags are NOT accepted. Place recyclables loose and un-bagged in your recycling cart or bin. **

The County provides single-stream recycling, which means items should be placed in the same container, without the need to sort or separate.

Overflow of recyclables can be placed on any receptacle or cardboard box marked with an X or the word “Recycling." Cardboard boxes will be collected with contents.

YARD TRIM 

Residents who have County-provided 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, free of charge.

Convenience Centers

Residents who do not have County-provided curbside collection should use the Residential Convenience Drop-Off Centers for disposal of regular household bagged trash and un-bagged recyclables.

NOTE:  Effective February 1, 2019, for the health and safety of staff, Prince George's County residents requesting curbside collection of Bulky items will be required to completely cover mattresses and box springs in a protective plastic covering. Plastic zippered mattress covers are available at many local retail stores for a nominal fee.​

​Mattresses and box springs delivered to the landfill by residents will not be required to be covered in the protective encasement. 

Missed Collections

If the county fails to make the scheduled collection date due to inclement weather or other conditions not the fault of the homeowner, we will reschedule the collection for the next day. If the homeowner fails to place items at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day and the items are not picked up, the homeowner will have to reschedule for the next available date.

Collection Notes

  • Bulky Trash Collection does not pick up household trash or materials from evictions, foreclosures, unoccupied properties, commercial properties, apartment complexes, home renovations, remodeling projects or clean lot enforcement. The disposal of materials from these sites is the responsibility of the homeowner/landlord, contractor or business owner.
  • Once you have been given an appointment date, there can be no changes/additions to the pickup.
  • Please ensure there is nothing blocking access to the items requiring pickup. Blocked items will not be able to be picked up.
