Recycling and trash trucks making collections for Montgomery County may work until
County-provided recycling collections for blue bin recyclables,
yard trimmings, and mixed paper are made by different trucks. These
trucks typically have different schedules. For example, even though
your blue bin was emptied at 7:15 a.m., the yard trimmings truck may not
arrive until 2:00 p.m., possibly giving the appearance throughout the
morning that the leaves and grass were left behind.
Call Montgomery County's Customer Service Center at 3-1-1 (out-of-County: 240-777-0311, TTY: 240-773-3556) the next morning to report a missed collection. Missed collections
must be reported no later than 5 p.m. two business days after your collection
day. In the meantime, do not remove your items from the curb.
The information on this page applies only to recycling and
trash collections provided by Montgomery County. If your collection contract
is directly between you and a hauling company, or is arranged by your
homeowners' association or municipality, please contact the company, association,
or municipality directly.
