Wednesday Trash/Recycling Collections In Parts of Potomac, Silver Spring, Bethesda May be Delayed due to Strike

The labor strike at one of the County’s trash/recycling collection contractors continues. Company owners have assured the County that they have sufficient personnel to provide refuse and recycling collection services on Wednesday and every day until the striking employees return to work.

Residents are reminded to have their items at the curb by 7 a.m.
