Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced that during the month of April, the Department of Public Works will be holding various events and specials to help our residents clean up their homes:
- Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding - Saturday, April 20, 2019 - 8:00am to 12:00pm If you have any old, important papers and old electronics, get them together and bring them to Public Works, 305-307 First Street. Only entertainment/media electronics will be accepted for this event such as televisions, stereos, computers, game systems and their accessories. Microwaves, blenders, toaster ovens and other electrical items that may have a digital display or circuitry are not considered electronics for this event. Chesapeake Paper Systems will also be on site with their shredding truck to shred your documents safely. Verification is needed to show that you are a City resident or City business, so please bring a driver's license or mail addressed to your City business. You can call Public Works at 301-725-0088 ahead of time to check if you live in the city limits of Laurel.

Public Works will start accepting requests for April 10th's pickup on Tuesday, April 2nd, and on Tuesday, April 16th, for April 24th’s pick up.
- Extra Yard Debris Collections on Mondays - During the month of April, Public Works will be offering Monday Yard Debris collections in addition to Wednesday yard debris collections. Yard debris pickups are FREE, but residents must still call, email or submit an online request for yard debris pickups. The deadline for our Monday pickup is the Thursday before and the deadline for our Wednesday pickup is the Monday before.
- Community Dumpsters - Community Dumpsters will be available to Homeowner Associations for residents to dispose of their bulky items on select Saturdays in April from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Call your HOA to find out if your neighborhood is participating.
