Laurel city offices will be closed Monday, Feb. 18 in observance of Presidents' Day.
Refuse and recycling collected on Mondays will be collected Tuesday, Feb. 19; and Tuesday collections will be made on Wednesday, Feb. 20. There is no change to Wednesday's refuse and recycling collections.
The city will not make residential special pickup or yard debris collections the week of Feb. 18. The next special collections are scheduled for Feb. 27. Schedule a pickup by contacting the Laurel Department of Public Works at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-725-0088.
City officials released information reminding residents to wait until after 7:30 p.m. the night before a collection before placing refuse and recycling at the curb. Taking items to the curb earlier is a violation of city code and could result in receiving a citation. City officials also caution that city code states that all refuse and recycling containers be returned to a garage or placed in the rear of a home before 7:30 p.m. on the day of pick up.
