Recycling and refuse collection dates will shift the weeks of December 24 and 31 for the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays for the city of Rockville.
Monday collection will occur as scheduled both weeks. Due to the holidays, collection regularly scheduled for Tuesdays will occur on Wednesdays; collection regularly scheduled on Wednesday will occur on Thursday; collection regularly scheduled on Thursday will occur on Friday; and collection regularly scheduled on Friday will occur on Saturday.
Christmas trees will be collected with recycling and refuse service. The trees will be taken to the Montgomery County Recycling Center, where they will become mulch.
Residents should place cut trees at the curb for pick up on regular recycling days, and they should remove all ornaments and metals, wires, stands and decorations, including tinsel. Trees should not be bagged.
Unwanted artificial trees should be dismantled and placed in the gray refuse cart for regular weekly collection. Artificial trees that are too large to fit in the cart can be collected by appointment as one of your allowed six bulk collections per year or taken to the Montgomery County Transfer Station.
