Bulk Refuse Collection Suspended Due to County Incinerator Issues 

Due to issues with the solid waste incinerator at the Montgomery County Resource Recovery Facility in Dickerson, the City of Rockville will not be collecting bulk refuse at this time.

Household recycling and trash collections remain on their regular schedule.

Scheduled bulk refuse collections are suspended until the county-owned facility resumes operations. Visit for updates about the status of the county facility.

Bulk waste collections are for large waste that does not fit into carts, such as a couch, desk, sink, door, or cabinet up to 499 pounds. Scheduled bulk metal and bulk yard waste collections will be made as scheduled. For information about scheduling a bulk metal or bulk yard waste collection, visit
