County facilities accepting recycling bins / blue bins:
We'll pick up your bin!
If you have a broken or no-longer-needed recycling bin at your home, and receive Montgomery County-provided recycling service, we will pick it up from you at no charge. (Check who provides your recycling service.)
To request pickup,
- Place your request online. Or,
- Call Montgomery County's Customer Service Center at 311 (out-of-County: 240-777-0311, TTY: 301-251-4850 ) to make a phone request.
Then, prepare your bin for pick up.
What happens to old recycling bins?
We recycle them! We pack the bins we collect onto pallets, and ship them to a plastics processor. The processor grinds up the bins, and uses them to make new plastic products.
