Dumpster Days and Curbside Collection
The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works (DPW) will place a dumpster in the parking lot of the Recreation Area on the morning of July 30, 2024, and remove it by noon on August 1, 2024.
 
There will be a limited number of dumpsters provided by Anne Arundel County DPW.  Therefore, it is important to load the material from the rear to the front of the dumpster(s).  This loading practice will allow the community to get the full use of the dumpster(s) prior to the scheduled removal date.
 
Below is a list of unacceptable materials that SHOULD NOT be placed in the dumpster(s).  If the dumpster(s) are contaminated with unacceptable materials, the community will be removed from the Anne Arundel County DPW Community Clean Up Program.  Dumpster Days is not meant to replace the normal Curbside Collection and Recycling Program. Information regarding the normal Curbside Collection and Recycling Program can be found at the bottom of this page.

  • Detailed information on what is, and is NOT, accepted within the curbside collection of recyclables can be found HERE
  • REMINDER: Plastic bags, wrap and film are NOT accepted within curbside recycling.  Unfortunately, we continue to observe a high volume of this contaminate within curbside recycling containers. Please recycle this material at County Recycling Centers or local retail stores.
 
Large Plastic Items: 
Large plastic items such as children’s toys and playsets can be recycled. The items should be placed next to your recycling container(s) with other paper, plastic, metal and glass recyclables on your collection day.

Large Trash Items: 
Bulk trash items like, sofas, mattresses, tables, and rolls of carpet are typical trash examples that do not fit into containers. The items should be placed next to your trash container(s) on your collection day.

Please set out only three items at a time on your weekly collection day. Do not place wood and lumber or building and construction materials for collection as bulky trash. These items are not collected curbside.
