Town-Wide Clean Up Day MONDAY, JULY 25
On Monday, July 25th the Department of Public Works is asking all residents to participate in a town-wide cleanup day. On July 25th only, all bulky trash placed for collection at the curb will not cost the Town of Cheverly a penny at the landfill scales. This is a one-time–one-day permit, which upon request, was granted to the town of Cheverly by the Prince George’s County Department of the Environment.
All town residents are being asked to ensure that on July 25th the bulky trash collected from the Town’s curbs is and was generated within our corporate limits. Bulky trash from elsewhere, (family, friends, businesses, and contractors) will exceed the town’s capabilities and unnecessarily burden our equipment and personnel. This day is for the bulky trash of the residents of Cheverly only.
All the rules of Special Trash Collections apply. Materials that WILL NOT be accepted for collection: APPLIANCES (fee for disposal); AUTO PARTS, BRICKS, CONCRETE, ROCKS, etc., CAST IRON, CONSTRUCTION and/or DEMOLITION DEBRIS, HAZARDOUS WASTE.
However, on Monday, July 25th, the permit will allow us to pick up car tires and dispose of them for free at a facility operated by Prince George’s County. This is the same place that is open on weekends and accepts from county residents tires and other refuse that the trash truck cannot collect in the packer for disposal.
Please keep in mind that our regular trash collection schedule will continue during this special trash pickup day. If you have any questions regarding this cleanup day call us at Public Works (301-773-2666) Monday through Friday between 7:30AM and 4:00PM.
