In order to help our residents prepare for the upcoming holidays, the City of Laurel Department of Public Works has added an extra-special Residential Special Pickup and Yard Debris collection to our calendar!   November 30th will now have a bulk-item pickup as well as a yard debris pickup.


Residential Special Pickup collection is intended for the unusually large accumulation of household or yard wastes that cannot be picked up in the normal twice a week refuse collection. Special Pickups are available to single-or two-family dwelling units. 


Yard debris needs to be in a paper bag or a reusable container. Branches need to be less than 4' in length and 3 inches in diameter and tied and/or bundled.  Bundles cannot exceed 2’ in diameter. Please have your yard debris out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection.


Scheduling: Requests for pickups must be made by the end of the day MONDAY, November 28th. To contact us by phone call: 301-725-0088 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (TTY/Text users call via Maryland Relay). After hour callers may leave a message on our automated voice mail system. For your convenience you can also schedule a special pickup or yard debris collection 24/7 by e-mailing Public Works at [email protected].  For additional information please see our Bulk Trash Pickup page.
