Bulky Trash Collection

Bulky Trash Collection is provided by appointment only. To request Bulky Trash collection, residents must call Bates Trucking at 301-773-2069 by Tuesday, no later than 2 p.m. to have bulk trash picked-up on Wednesday.

This service is free of charge, however, there is a three (3) item limit.
If the homeowner fails to place items at the curb by 6:30 a.m. on the scheduled collection day and the items are not picked up, the homeowner will have to reschedule for collection the following week.

If there are too many items to be disposed of, residents may contact the City of Seat Pleasant Public Works Department at 301-336-2600 for an estimate to remove bulk trash.
