For large appliances such as washers, refrigerators, etc., or sofas, stuffed chairs, etc., or any metal, please call (410) 297-4259 for an appointment and leave a list of your items, your address and return phone number. You will receive a call back. Large appliances are limited to 1-2 items; small items are limited to 3-5 items per pickup.
|Unfortunately, the City does not participate or have a way to recycle used electronics. We suggest that you contact a business that participates in electronic recycling if you wish to recycle. Otherwise, cell phones, charges, batteries, and ink cartridges can be placed in normal trash and pick up on your scheduled collection day. Large electronics such as a TV and computer require its own yellow sticker and placed adjacent to the trash container.|
|Open to the public, there is a drop-off site located at 361 Michael Lane.|
Containers require pre-paid Aberdeen trash stickers to cover the cost of the County-imposed tipping fee. Only trash items require stickers. Stickers should be placed on the bags or on the top piece of trash inside of the can. Stickers should be placed around the "neck" of the bag to reduce slippage.
Please be advised that the City of Aberdeen does not accept treated lumber or construction debris. For more information on dropping off lumber and construction debris, please contact Honeygo Run in Perry Hall at (410) 335-9500.
Have all items at the curb by 5 a.m. (unless otherwise specified) to ensure pickup.
