The Division of Solid Waste Services provides weekly,
curbside recycling collections to Montgomery County residents.
The Division is responsible for the collection of trash
from about 40% of Montgomery County's homes, primarily in the southern part
of the County. This service is provided through contracts with independent
trash collection companies. All other single-family and townhomes in the
County have trash collection through
private subscriptions directly with the trash haulers and must make
their own trash collection arrangements
Each residential property receiving Montgomery
County-provided trash collection is entitled to 5 bulk collections
per calendar year for certain types of miscellaneous and/or bulky household
Bulk collections must be scheduled in advance with the
County by the occupant or resident.
- The collection will then be made on your trash
- All items must be placed at your curb by 7:00 a.m. on
the day of collection.
- Collections are made between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m
