Make it a Green New Year in Gaithersburg
Get a green start on the New Year by recycling as much as you can this holiday season.
Natural trees can be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on your regular recycling day. Remove all decorations.
Wrapping paper, glass containers and many plastics can be recycled easily thanks to the City's single stream recycling program. Place them all in your bin for curbside pick-up.
Many retailers accept unwanted mobile phones for reuse. Consider donating yours.
Disposable batteries are no longer considered hazardous and can be placed in your household trash.
Rechargeable batteries, computers and other electronic devices should be taken to the Transfer Station. You might also consider holding on to unwanted electronic devices until the City's next community shredding event in the fall of 2019.
This is a City of Gaithersburg announcement.
