BULK PICKUP REQUEST

PLEASE CALL MONTGOMERY COUNTY METAL RECYCLE AT 240-777-0311 FOR ALL METAL

What is a Bulk Pickup?

A bulk pick up is any non-recyclable item that cannot fit into your trash can. All metal items, cardboard/paper and/or commingle (bottles, cans, glass, aluminum, etc.) material and yard waste MUST be recycled through Montgomery County- you can reach them at 240-777-0311.

ALL BULK REQUESTS ARE LIMITED
A bulk pickup is considered to consist of 1 to 4 acceptable items, depending on size.  Therefore your bulk request could be treated as 2,3,4 or more bulk pickups and may result in a charge.  Cleaning out your house or garage is not considered a single bulk pickup and you should expect there will be a charge.  Please note, some items carry a fee regardless due to their size and/or weight. If there is a fee assessed with your bulk pick up, it must be paid by credit card at the time of scheduling. Please be aware that Potomac Disposal, Inc. will not collect any material left behind by a contractor.
