Curbside Recycling

Curbside Recycling


Curbside recycling collection of single stream recyclables is provided year-round on an every-other-week basis.  A separate truck collects yard waste weekly, April through December.  Recyclables and yard waste should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. to ensure pick-up.  (*This curbside recycling program excludes residents residing within the Town limits of La Plata and Indian Head.  Town residents should contact their respective Town. ) 

Curbside Recycling Expansions

Curbside recycling collection is provided to approximately 43,560 homes, 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 link below and completing the expansion request form.
