Curbside Collection Schedules & Waste Separation Guides


CBRM's Solid Waste App and Waste Wizard Sorting Guide

Are you unsure of your collection day for blue bags, garbage, or green cart? Do you know how to properly dispose of used tires, empty paint cans, safe sharps, or microwave ovens?

The Solid Waste Department has launched a free solid waste app available for download by visiting the Apple Store or the Google Play Store. Our app will make it even easier for you to remember your collection schedule or find out disposal options for your waste materials. You can use the new solid waste app to receive weekly collection reminders, receive notifications about collection or find out an answer to a disposal question.

Get the new CBRM Solid Waste App by downloading it on your phones or i-pads or sign up for the new Solid Waste App by visiting CBRM’s website.
