Updated Information on Trash Collection Services in Thurmont


All household trash related concerns are being handled directly by our Trash Contractor, Ecology Services. As has always been the case, household trash does not include construction items (metal, lumber, insulation, etc.) or yard waste. Town staff collects curbside grass clippings (properly placed in paper yard bags) each Monday. Sticks, branches, and other yard waste can be dropped off at the Yard Waste dropoff area once each month. The schedule and address of the yard waste dropoff can be found on the town’s website ( or by contacting the Town Office. Residents are responsible to take construction supplies to the Frederick County Landfill or any other sanctioned facility. Town staff and/or Ecology Services will not pick up construction items. If you have household trash related concerns, please call the Town Office number at 301-271-7313 and dial extension 211 to report your concern. For yard waste, bulk trash or any other non-household trash concerns, call 301-271-7313 and dial “0”. Thank you.
