The City of Laurel Department of Public Works has come up with a fun way for residents to GO GREEN.


A new recycling competition is now underway.


To get started:

  • log onto
  • Click on the Government tab and find Public Works
  • On the Left side of the Public Works page click on Recycling Competition
  • Find out which neighborhood you’re in, and get busy recycling.
  • On the 21st of every month, a new challenge will be announced.


    During the month of April, the neighborhood that puts out the most recyclables wins.


     Check the DPW website at the beginning of the month to find out who won the previous month.


    ****The first ten residents from the winning neighborhood who call DPW at 301-725-0088 will receive $10 off a bulk pickup.

                Also, don’t forget about the Recycle Coach App.





             You can access it from your PC or download it onto your smartphone.  Here’s the link:






              That’s the best way to stay on top of the monthly contest and other recycling events, like the

               City’s electronic recycling event on Saturday, April 22nd from 8 to Noon, City of Laurel DPW at

               305-307 First Street in Laurel.



    By the way, we unofficially tested the competition score keeping in March, and the blue and

    orange neighborhoods recycled the most.  Good job neighbors!


    The more you reduce, recycle and reuse things, the better it is for the environment.



    For more information, visit the Department of Public Works Section on the City of Laurel’s

    Website.  or call them at 301-725-0088.
