Rockville City Closings

UPDATED 10.30.12 at 9:30 a.m.

The City of Rockville will “slide” its regularly scheduled recycling and refuse collection by two days this week. The new schedule will allow crews to respond to the effects of Hurricane Sandy and give residents the opportunity to dispose of any spoiled food along with regular trash.

* Residents whose collection typically occurs on Monday should put their collection out on Wednesday.
* Residents whose collection typically occurs on Tuesday should put their collection out on Thursday.
* Residents whose collection typically occurs on Wednesday should put their collection out on Friday.
* Residents whose collection typically occurs on Thursday should put their collection out on Saturday.
* Residents whose collection typically occurs on Friday should put their collection out on Sunday.

The normal recycling and refuse collection will resume Monday, Nov. 5.

Residents should place storm debris at the curb for crews to collect. Branches should be no more than eight feet long and should easily clear overhead power lines and trees so they can be accessed by Rockville’s heavy equipment vehicles. It is expected that there will be a heavy volume of yard waste throughout the community. Residents are asked to be patient; crews will pick up debris as soon as possible.
