Curbside Recycling Expansions
Curbside recycling collection is provided to approximately 41,372 homes located in the more densely populated areas of the county, with expansions occurring as often as possible. Expansions are based on the availability of funds and targeted to the more densely populated areas of Charles County. Due to construction and other factors, not all streets located within a new neighborhood/area will receive curbside collection. Requests for expansion can be submitted by clicking on the below expansion request link and completing the expansion request form.
