Bulk Trash and White Goods Pickup

Bulk Trash


Bulk trash collections occur on the first and third Friday of each month. Pickups must be scheduled in advance, and are limited to 25 households a day. To request a pickup, residents can call (301) 985-5000, use the My Hyattsville mobile app, or visit www.hyattsville.org/request.

As a reminder, below are a few of the guidelines when requesting bulk trash pickup:

  • Items must be placed curbside no earlier than 6 p.m. on the evening before pickup. Items that are left curbside more than one day prior may result in a fine and/or citation.
  • Per pickup, households are limited to no more than three cubic yards of bulk trash. For example; one mattress and box spring; one sofa; or two large chairs.
  • Construction debris, hazardous waste, and landscaping elements such as gravel, soil, or concrete edging will not be collected. Items such as these must be disposed of properly by the resident or a contractor.
  • Each address is allowed four bulk trash pickups per year.

White Goods 


White good appliance pickups are available by request only. White goods include air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, hot water heaters, and dishwashers.

Please note that white goods that are still in working order, as well as building materials and furniture that can be reused, can all be donated to Community Forklift for resale (and to prevent them from going into landfills). To schedule a free pickup, call 301-832-0781.

White goods that don't work, and tires, can be picked up by the City's Department of Public Works. Residents can schedule a free pickup here or by calling (301) 985-5000.
