Extra Trash and Recycling?

We know more time at home can mean more trash and recyclables. But there’s no need for an extra trash cart.

If you have more bags of trash than usual, place them next to your cart by 6 a.m. on your collection day and city crews will collect them. If you have extra recyclables, please don’t put them in plastic bags, which could get tangled in recycling equipment. Instead, place them in any 32-gallon can with handles and we will pick them up.

Learn more about Rockville’s recycling and trash collection, including what can and can’t be recycled, at www.rockvillemd.gov/recycling-trash, call 240-314-8568, or email recyclingrefuse@rockvillemd.gov.
