Overview

Large metal items and appliances, like swing sets, refrigerators, and lawn mowers, can be recycled. Contact Customer Service to schedule a bulk metal collection before you place any metal items at the curb. Please note that bulky trash and plastic items are collected weekly on your regular collection day and do not require an appointment. 

  • Items must be ready at the curb by 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
  • Cancellations must be received 48-hours prior to the scheduled collection date.
  • Only those items specifically requested for collection will be picked up.
  • Be sure items are not obstructed by vehicles, fences, or other structures.
Anne Arundel County employees will provide collection services for large metal items and appliances using a truck similar to the one pictured in the photograph below. If you observe a different vehicle collecting large metal items at your home or in your community, please report it to us at (410) 222-6100. Information about any such observations, including vehicle description, markings or license tag information, and any other vehicle identifier would be helpful to us.
