To prepare your basketball hoop for curbside collection, take the hoop apart to separate the material types for processing.

The backboard and base are bulk trash.

If you have County-provided trash service, request a bulk trash collection for the backboard and base at no additional charge. Remove the water or sand from the base.

If you have another trash service provider, please contact them for instructions.

We also accept bulk trash directly at our Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station and our Poolesville Beauty Spot.

The pole is scrap metal.

Request a scrap metal recycling pickup for the pole at no additional charge. The pole must be free of concrete.
