  • Please ensure that the cover of the trash container is tightly closed
  • Please ensure that the trash containers are accessible so that nothing will hinder or impede trash collection by DPW employees

Recycling in the City of Hyattsville is managed by Prince George's County. Visit the County's Recycling web page for information about recycling service changes.
