Recycle the Holidays (But Be Careful with Batteries)

City of Rockville Holiday Recycle Guide infographic

When the post-holiday cleanup begins, remember: Rockville collects and recycles electronics, such as cell phones, computers, televisions and holiday lights through requests for special collections, and collects Christmas trees as part of its recycling and trash collection.

Getting rid of old batteries? Don’t dispose of them in your trash or recycling cart, where they could start a fire. Instead, bring batteries of any size to the household hazardous waste drop-off at the county transfer station at 16105 Frederick Road.
