Effective Immediately: We are limiting our 22-gallon recycling bins to 1 bin per year. A combination of COVID-19-driven demand, catastrophic weather and logistical challenges has created supply shortages. You may use a cardboard box to recycle bottles and cans or use your own container by attaching a County decal (The container cannot weigh more than 45 pounds). Decals can be ordered here. We apologize for this inconvenience.
You may order up to 1
bin per year.
These 22-gallon bins are for single-family and townhouse residents who receive Montgomery County-provided recycling service. Check whether your recycling service is County-provided.
If you live in a municipality, contact your local officials to request a recycling bin.
If you receive recycling collection service from Montgomery County, Maryland, we provide and deliver these bins free of charge.
We will place your new bin near your door or garage. You do not need to be home to receive it.
Blue bin deliveries are made by County staff, not by your recycling collection crew. They may happen any weekday, and not necessarily on your recycling day.
Collect your recyclables in a small cardboard box. If we haven't delivered your new bin by your recycling day, set the cardboard box out at the curb, just as you would do with your bin.
Yes. In fact, we recycle the broken bins we collect. Request pickup of your old blue bin.
