Collection Schedule

The City of Rockville provides once-per-week curbside recycling, trash and yard waste collections. The collection day is determined by your address.      


  • All carts and materials must be placed at the curb or alleyway the night before or by 6 a.m. on your collection day.
  • Carts should have the wheels to the curb and the lid opening to the street. Do not block mailboxes or driveways.
  • Carts must be removed from the curb or alleyway within 24 hours after collection.

Some Rockville addresses are not within city limits and will need to be serviced by a local provider.
