Twice per 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, paint cans (no liquid inside can), TV carts, bathtubs, sinks, toilets, and wall units.
Please place all bulk(y) trash items curbside on the Friday night, after 6 p.m., before the cleanup day. Your items will be collected on Saturday.
Need your stuff picked up sooner? Call Community Forklift at 301-985-5180 (the nearby nonprofit can schedule a pick up for most items free of charge) or schedule a pickup by the City's contractor by calling 301-985-5032.
