Trash collection is on Monday and Thursday. Generally, if the waste collection day is a Federal holiday, the trash will not be collected until the next regularly scheduled trash day and the recycling collection is delayed one day following the holiday that week.
Items for disposal (trash, recycling, bulk trash pick-up) are not to be placed curbside earlier than 7:00 pm the night before a scheduled collection and should be placed curbside before 7:00 am on collection day to avoid missing the collection. Containers are required to be removed from the collection area no later than 12:00 midnight the day the removal service was rendered.
Residents may receive up to two free bulk trash collections per calendar year. Please call B & B Refuse at 301-424-1427 to make arrangements.
Yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, twigs, etc.) may be placed curbside the weekend prior to the recycling collection on Thursday in the approved brown paper yard waste bags or in a container with a lid labeled yard trim.
Trash and recycling containers are to be placed in front of your home near the community sidewalk for collection. Containers are not to be placed in islands or any other common areas. Containers are to be stored in the rear of the property or inside the home when not out for collection.
All trash placed out for collection is to be secured in a container with a lid. Bagged trash placed out for collection is prohibited.
Residents are responsible for picking up any trash or recycling items of theirs which are carried away from the collection area either by wind, animals, birds, etc.
Prohibited items for curbside disposal include, but are not limited to, automotive waste products, household hazardous materials, garden and pool chemicals, radioactive materials, explosives, tires, or any commercial, industrial or medical waste.
