Recycling, Trash & Bulk Pickup
Please be aware that the recycling and trash pickup are actually not the same company. Recycling is run by the county and trash by Potomac Disposal. See more information about each below.
You can look up our county recycling collection day and services by going here
Montgomery County residents may recycle their Christmas trees from December 26th through the first Friday of February by placing the entire tree at the curb by 7am on their regular recycling collection day. Please make sure to remove all decorations and tinsel and do NOT place tree inside a plastic bag.
Trash Pickup Schedule
Trash collection is scheduled on some holidays if it falls on a regularly scheduled day (Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving).
However, trash pickup may be affected by some holidays (Christmas, New Year’s Day). If the holiday falls on a trash collection day, Potomac Disposal collects the next collection day following the holiday.
Note: Please do not leave your trash in those white kitchen bags. The animals get into those and it makes a big mess. Thank you for your cooperation.
Our Waste Management company, Potomac Disposal, will do bulk pickup. Go to Potomac Disposal’s website for more information on what is acceptable and what isn’t or to fill out the form to request a bulk pickup http://www.potomacdisposal.com/bulk-pickup.
