Curbside Collection

Recycling, yard waste and trash are collected once a week.  Each material, trash, recycling, and yard waste, is collected by a separate truck.  Although the trucks all look similar, recycling and yard waste trucks are marked with recycling symbols. 

Note: If you have moved into a community currently served by the curbside program, you do not need to contact the County to start service at your new residence. 

There are several methods for determining your collection day:

  • Ask a neighbor
  • Visit the MyAnneArundel application
  • Call our Customer Service Representatives at (410) 222-6100 weekdays between  7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
