Bulk Waste

Rockville provides special bulk waste collections by appointment only. Alternatively, you can drop off bulk waste at the Montgomery County Transfer Station.

Bulk waste collections are for large waste that does not fit into carts, such as a couch, desk, sink, door, or cabinet up to 499 pounds.
