Bulky Trash Collection Info (Detailed)

West Laurel residents can utilize the County's Bulky Trash Collection by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, dial 3-1-1 or call 301-883-4748 Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Appointments can also be scheduled via the online Bulky Application at Bulky Trash Online Scheduling Form. Appointments are scheduled for normal county workdays on a first-come, first-served basis.

​Missed Collections

​If the county fails to make the scheduled collection date due to inclement weather or other conditions not the fault of the homeowner, we will reschedule the collection for the next day. If the homeowner fails to place items at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day and the items are not picked up, the homeowner will have to reschedule for the next available date.

Collection Notes

Bulky Trash Collection does not pick up household trash or materials from evictions, foreclosures, unoccupied properties, commercial properties, apartment complexes, home renovations, remodeling projects or clean lot enforcement. The disposal of materials from these sites is the responsibility of the homeowner/landlord, contractor or business owner.

Once you have been given an appointment date, there can be no changes/additions to the pickup.

Please ensure there is nothing blocking access to the items requiring pickup. Blocked items will not be able to be picked up.
