College Park, MD 20740

The City of College Park has a curbside single stream recycling program. Blue recycling carts are provided at no cost to City residents who receive City refuse collection service. Single stream recycling means that your recyclable paper, plastic, metal, and glass items may all be combined in your blue recycling cart; paper no longer needs to be separated.

Please have the containers out at the curb by 7am and remove by midnight on collection day. Please leave 3-4 feet between refuse and recycling carts at the curb.

Yard Waste, Electronics, and White Goods are recyclable but should not be included in your recycling cart. Special collections are made on Thursdays and Fridays by appointment; please call Public Works at 240-487-3590 or email publicworks@collegeparkmd.gov to request a special pickup.
