22-gallon Recycling Bin

22-gallon Recycling Bin

Who may order 22-gallon bins?

These 22-gallon bins are for single-family and townhouse residents who receive Montgomery County-provided recycling service. Check whether your recycling service is County-provided.

If you live in a municipality, contact your local officials to request a recycling bin.

How big is the bin?

  • 18.5" wide
  • 21" high
  • 15.5" deep
  • 22-gallon capacity

How much does it cost?

If you receive recycling collection service from Montgomery County, Maryland, we provide and deliver these bins free of charge.

When will I get my new bin?

If you ordered a recycling bin by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, you should receive it by the end of the following week. We will place your new bin near your door or garage. You do not need to be home to receive it.

Orders placed after 2:00 p.m. on Friday will be delivered in two weeks.

Blue bin deliveries are made by County staff, not by your recycling collection crew. They may happen any day of the week, and not necessarily on your recycling day.

How do I recycle until my new bin arrives?

Please collect your recyclables in a small cardboard box. If we haven't delivered your new bin by your recycling day, set the cardboard box out at the curb, just as you would do with your bin. To help the collection crew, write "Recycle" on your box in letters visible from the street.

Will you pick up my old bin?

Yes. In fact, we recycle the broken bins we collect. However, you must specifically request this service. Request pickup of your old blue bin.

May I get a bin at the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station or at the Recycling Center?
