Bulk Waste & Special Services

Bulk Waste Pop-up Events

The City of Hyattsville hosts occasional bulk waste pop-up events for residents to dispose of bulk trash items. 

At these events, residents can bring bulk trash to containers located at either the City Building (4310 Gallatin Street) or the Department of Public Works Facility (4633 Arundel Place). 

Acceptable items include bagged trash, furniture, empty lawn equipment, dry paint cans, and household goods. Construction debris, hazardous waste, and landscaping elements such as gravel, soil, or concrete edging will not be collected. These items must be disposed of properly by the resident or a contractor.

Bulk Trash Pick-Ups

Hyattsville residents may also schedule Bulk trash pick-ups from their residence. Pick-ups occur on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Pickups must be scheduled in advance, and are limited to 25 households a day. To request a pickup, residents can call (301) 985-5032, use the My Hyattsville mobile app, or visit www.hyattsville.org/request.

Guidelines for bulk trash pickup are:

  • Households are limited to no more than four items per pickup. For example; one mattress, one box spring, and two chairs.
  • Items must be placed curbside no earlier than 6 p.m. the evening before pickup. Items that are left curbside more than one day prior may result in a fine and/or citation.
  • Acceptable items include bagged trash, furniture, empty lawn equipment, dry paint cans, and household goods. Construction debris, hazardous waste, and landscaping elements such as gravel, soil, or concrete edging will not be collected. These items must be disposed of properly by the resident or a contractor.
  • Each address is allowed four bulk trash pickups per year.

White Goods

White good appliance pickups are available by request only. White goods include air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, hot water heaters, and dishwashers.

Please note that white goods that are still in working order, as well as building materials and furniture that can be reused, can all be donated to Community Forklift for resale (and to prevent them from going into landfills). To schedule a free pickup, call 301-832-0781.

White goods that don't work can be picked up by the City's Department of Public Works. Residents can schedule a free pickup here or by calling (301) 985-5032.
