  • This is for Chametz trash only. Please separate Chametz from non-Chametz trash as much as possible and leave your non-Chametz trash for regular (Monday for most of Kemp Mill) pickup.
  • This is not to be used for: furniture, mattresses, scrap metal, construction materials or other non-food related items. Most items that can't be placed in your regular trash pickup will be picked up for FREE from your home by Montgomery County. Click here for details.
