About Us

We are a family owned and operated business serving the residents and businesses of Montgomery County since 1984. We are three brothers who were born and raised in Montgomery County, and we still reside here as well. We are committed to providing the most reliable and dependable service at the most competitive rates while at the same time doing our part to protect our environment.

Our Philosophy

Recycling and refuse removal are an important part of our everyday life. Keeping our environment clean and sustainable is of the utmost importance. However, you shouldn’t have to worry or be concerned about your recycling or refuse service. We feel our customers have enough to worry about as it is. We strive to make our services dependable, reliable, affordable, and worry free.

Our Green Mission

Potomac Disposal is now the only residential trash company in Montgomery County using natural gas vehicles. These vehicles are the cleanest burning in the industry. For our other trucks in the fleet, we equip them with the OPS Oil Purification System, providing many environmental benefits. For example: OPS eliminates the need for oil drains, reduces oil consumption, and reduces waste oil generation. Because the OPS keeps the engine oil soot-free, the engine burns CLEANER! Our non-natural gas vehicles also run on ultra-low-sulfur diesel. This is the cleanest burning fuel on the market!

Integrating clean burning natural gas vehicles and utilizing the OPS Oil Purification Systems are costly to us but they both have proven to be enormously beneficial to the environment.

Every year Potomac Disposal recycles thousands of tons of glass, aluminum, plastic, tin, cardboard, mixed paper, newspaper, metal, and yard waste generated by Montgomery County residents and businesses.

For front end containers requiring locks, we use the Serious Lock Gravity Lock-Bar System. This system does not require the driver to repeatedly get in and out of the truck to unlock the can, dump it, and re-lock. With this system, the driver pulls up to the can and simply dumps it and moves on. This significantly reduces idling time, which in turn reduces air emissions!

Reducing our carbon footprint, improving air quality, and recycling thousands of tons of waste every year… This is Potomac Disposal’s Green Mission.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:  All services are currently on schedule. Due to the volatility of the coronavirus pandemic, services may have to be delayed or reduced. For commercial accounts, services may be delayed or service frequency reduced. For residential services, services may also be delayed or reduced as well. For instance, if you have two time per week residential service, it may be reduced to one time due to crew shortages. Please check back daily for updates. Please note: Due to the fact that the majority of residents in the county are staying at home through this ordeal, trash loads are much heavier which will slow down service routes. Your trash may be picked up later than usual. Thank you for your consideration and understanding through this unique and difficult time for us all.
