Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced that City employees will receive a well-deserved day off in observance of Memorial Day on May 25, 2020.

Even though City facilities have been closed to the public during the pandemic and most City employees have been working from home, be aware that on May 25th, all our employees will be off, spending time with their families.

This will mean a change in the trash and recycling schedule for that week:

  • Monday’s trash and recycling pickup will be on Tuesday, May 26th (residential and commercial).
  • Tuesday’s residential trash and recycling will be collected on Wednesday, May 27th, with no change to commercial refuse/recycling collection.
  • Wednesday, Thursday and Friday trash, recycling and composting pickups are unchanged.
  • There will be no yard debris collections that week.

You can schedule yard debris pickup for the following week by either e-mailing [email protected], calling the Department of Public Works at 301-725-0088 or you can sign up and submit your yard debris pickup request through the MyLaurel app on the homepage of the City’s website,

Thank you for your cooperation and remember to continue social distancing and wearing your masks when out for essential items, so we can all keep each other safe and bring those COVID-19 numbers down!

Wishing you a safe and happy Memorial Day.
