Bulk trash is large non-metal items like furniture, carpet, and mattresses.
A rule-of-thumb is that an item is considered bulk trash if it doesn’t fit in a trash can or trash bag.
Unusually large quantities of cans or bags of trash such as from "Spring cleaning" are also considered bulk trash.
Bulk trash collections must be scheduled in advance of your collection day for County-provided trash service.
Private subscription or a municipality (not Montgomery County)
