Got junk? Have them recycled

The City of College Park Public Works facility (9217 51st Avenue) will be open all four Saturdays in April from 7:30 a.m. until 12:00pm.

City residents may drop off bulky trash, electronics for recycling, and yard waste; however hazardous materials, including but not limited to, paint, compressed cylinders, shingles, asphalt, chemicals, etc. will NOT be accepted. 

Air conditioners, heat pumps, refrigerators and freezers may incur a collection fee; tires will incur a disposal fee of $4.00 each.

These weekend events are only open for College Park city residents; you must show proof of residency in the City of College Park to participate.

Also, like in last year, Public Works will also have two donations groups back to accept your reusable, leftover  items – keep them out of the landfill and get a tax deduction.

  • Clothes, household/kitchen items, small furniture pieces, books, sporting goods, etc., will be accepted for donation by American Rescue Workers (Capitol Heights; 301-336-6200;
  • Building and remodeling materials (surplus or in very good condition) including bricks and paving materials, doors, hardware, tools, reusable lumber, gardening supplies, vanities, light fixtures, etc., will be donated to Community Forklift.

If there are any questions please feel free to contact Public Works Recycling Coordinator Stacey King by phone (240-487-3593) or email (
