Bulk Trash Day

BULK TRASH – SATURDAY, May 4, 2024 :

From 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. the City will provide compaction trucks and dumpsters at Taneytown Memorial Park for the removal of bulk trash. Citizens are asked to observe the following procedures:

  • Citizens will be responsible for bringing their trash to the park for disposal.
  • All persons who are dumping material will be required to show proper ID to the attendants, before they can drop off their items. Only citizens of Taneytown will be allowed to dispose of trash. All others will be turned away.
  • Please do not leave trash in the park after hours specified above. The trash disposal service will only operate during these hours.
  • Vehicles transporting bulk trash for disposal must be limited to passenger vehicles and pickup trucks. Larger trucks should haul their items directly to the Carroll County Landfill.
  • All items containing oil and/or gas must be drained.
  • The attendant will direct you to dedicated dumpsters for metal items and appliances.
  • There will be one compaction truck designated for all other acceptable recyclable items, which includes little tyke play equipment, plastic trash cans, etc.
  • To keep the flow of traffic moving, all recycling items should be separated before entering the drop-off area.
  • Dirt, sod, tires, propane tanks, paint (not dried out), concrete debris or chemicals of any type will not be accepted.
  • Yard waste will be limited to grass clippings, flower & shrubbery trimmings only, and must be placed in paper— kraft bags.

This may be the only bulk trash event for 2024, so please have your unwanted items ready for disposal this spring.
