Cleanup Days

City Cleanup days each happen twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Check out our City Calendar for exact dates, and sign up for City-wide notifications about the cleanup days and much more at

Bulk Trash Cleanup Days

Twice a year, the City holds Mary Prangley Cleanup Days - named in honor of the City's first woman mayor, who worked to keep the City clean. On these days, the City will pick up your large trash items including: mattresses, box springs, chairs, tables, doors, grills, swings, cabinets, empty paint cans, TV carts, bathtubs, sinks, toilets, and wall units.

Please place all bulk trash items curbside after 6 p.m. on the Friday night before the cleanup day.

Need your stuff picked up sooner? Call Community Forklift at (301) 985-5180. This nearby nonprofit can schedule a pick up for most items free of charge. You can also schedule a pickup by the City's contractor by calling (301) 985-5000.

E-Recycling Days

Twice a year, the City accepts e-recycling free of charge at the Department of Public Works Operations Center at 4633 Arundel Place. Staff will be on site to answer any questions.

On E-Recycling Days, the City accepts batteries, cameras, cell phones, electrical cords, computers, monitors, keyboards, laptops, microwaves, toasters, toaster ovens, televisions, video games, video consoles, and CD players.

Need to drop off your stuff sooner? Prince George's County operates an Electronics Recycling Acceptance Site, co-located at the Brown Station Landfill in Upper Marlboro at 11611 White House Road. For more information, please visit their e-recycling webpage.
