Beginning July 1: Trash collection returns to normal (pre-COVID). Bulk items can be put out with regular trash. No need to schedule an appointment to dispose of couches, tables, beds, etc. Appointments are still required for appliances and other large metal items. Visit www.cityofbowie.org/servicerequest or call 301-809-2344 to schedule your special metal pickup appointment. Also: Loose cardboard is again being collected on your recycling day.
Your understanding and patience have been greatly appreciated as we have tried to protect employees and adapt our operations to evolving guidance on the spread of the coronavirus. As we work to catch up, it may take a while to get a metal item pickup appointment. You may also find that for the next couple of weeks trash may be picked up a little later in the day than usual because of the high volume of trash and bulk items to collect.
Finally, don’t forget – City government is closed on Friday, July 3rd for the Independence Day Holiday. There will be no trash or recycling pickup on that date.
