Yes, the County provides a Curbside Organics Composting Program that will expand countywide starting in April 2022. The Curbside Organics Composting Program allows residents to mix their food scraps with yard trim for the weekly Monday yard trim curbside collection. Food scraps must be placed inside the Organics cart. Only residents who opted in and received the appropriate program materials may put food scraps curbside for collection. Plastic bags are not accepted. For additional information about food scraps composting, visit mypgc.us/compost.
Residents residing in a townhome community must place their one (1) or two (2) standard bulky items or bags at the curb in front of their townhome (or their assigned parking space) for pickup. The hauler will not collect items in a common area or grounds.
You can only set out two (2) standard bulky items NEXT to the trash cart each week on your regularly scheduled collection day until all items are serviced. All bulky items MUST BE NEXT TO THE TRASH CART for collection.
Carpet and padding (Limit of carpet and padding is 324 sq. ft. - rolled and tied on ends)
Doors and cabinets
Furniture: such as sofas, coffee tables, bed head/footboards, dressers, tables, chairs, etc.
Mattresses and box springs (must be covered in protective plastic encasement)
Hot water heaters and push lawn mowers (Remove the gas tank and drain the oil from lawnmowers)
No more than two (2) large bags of smaller household items such as knick-knacks, home décor, small kitchen appliances (i.e., toaster ovens, toasters, blenders, air fryers, crock pots) can be set out instead of two regular bulky items. The two (2) large bags count as the two (2) maximum bulky items that can be set out on trash collection day
Residents may still bring any large bulky items directly to the Brown Station Road Sanitary Landﬁll for proper disposal. Residents driving a passenger vehicle or SUV will not be charged. Residents driving a pickup truck will incur a nominal fee of $10. Small bulky items that ﬁt in a trash bag may be disposed of at the Convenience Drop-off Centers located on Missouri Avenue and Brown Station Road. Please consider donating your usable items in good condition to a charitable organization before placing them at the curb. To view a list of organizations that accept large bulky items and other reuse alternatives, view our Reuse/Recycling Alternatives.
Clear the Curb waste collections includes all services offered to residents receiving County-contracted collection services or who pay a fee for bulky trash removal. These services include regular trash, recycling, organics, yard trim, and the new, improved bulky trash collection program. Residents who only pay for bulky trash removal will still need to schedule collections through PGC311: online at mypgc.us/pgc311 or by dialing 3-1-1 (if in the County) or 301-883-4748 (if out of the County).
Your trash hauler will only remove/collect two (2) standard bulky items from the curb per your weekly trash collection. Any additional items placed curbside will not be collected. If other items placed at the curb are not collected, you will be expected to bring the items back into your home until the following week’s trash collection day.
Allowing residents to set out two items per week with their regular trash will allow residents to dispose of unwanted items in a timelier manner, which cuts down on wait time, the temptation to illegally dump, and the backlog in a critical service.
