Bulk & Special Trash Collections

Refuse Collection Truck

Have questions about bulk and special trash collections?  Click here for information on bulk/special trash collections, yard waste and brush, curbside leaf collection and more.

The City collects four different types of special trash on Thursdays and Fridays, by appointment. Each source separated collection is performed by a different crew and truck.

  • Bulk trash (furniture, mattresses wrapped in plastic, large bulky items, etc.)
  • White goods & metals (washers, dryers, mowers, bikes, metal file cabinets, etc.)
  • Electronics for recycling (TVs, computers, printers, etc.)
  • Brush and Logs

You may see a truck on your street and wonder why they didn’t stop to pick-up your collection; it may be because they are collecting a different type of item. These different types of items should be separated to facilitate collection.

Don’t place items at the curb until you have scheduled an appointment. Call early in the week to assure a collection, because appointments are scheduled on a first call-first-serve basis. Contact the Department at or 240-487-3590 to schedule a collection. Have your items at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled day.
