County Tree Removal

Our neighbor Larry Christian spoke with County Program Coordinator Patricia Valentine of the Neighbor Design Center (NDC) last week as she marked neighborhood trees for removal this summer.  You may have noticed trees marked with white circles and sidewalk curbs marked with a green stripe. These trees (approximately 40), are to be removed this summer and new trees planted sometime after the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday.

If you have a dead tree along your curb that was not marked or have questions that you would like answered please feel free to contact Patricia Valentine at the following:

Email: pvalentine@ndc-md.org.

Phone: (301) 850.1462

Many thanks Larry for providing this invaluable information.

County Starts New Trash and Recycling Collection Schedule May 2, 2016

For immediate release:

Yard trimmings collections move to Monday; residents to receive FREE 64-gallon wheeled toter

 

LARGO, MD  Starting May 2, 2016, residential curbside trash and recycling pickups in Prince George’s County will move to a same day, once-a-week Tuesday through Friday schedule, providing resident’s with one trip to the curb. This change affects residents receiving County-contracted trash and recycling services only. Countywide yard trimmings pickups will also be affected moving to Monday from its current schedule of Wednesday.
According to an internal study, County officials have found fewer residents utilize twice-a-week garbage collection since the County introduced its recycling program in the 1990s. “County residents are using their blue recycling containers more and trashing less,” says Department of the Environment Director Adam Ortiz. “So, it’s good policy to make the switch now that residents are doing their part in helping the County reach its zero waste goals,” says Ortiz.

The new service schedule will not result in a rate reduction, but rather address a deficit in the County’s Solid Waste Fund which provides critical services; such as code reinforcement, litter pickup and blight removal throughout the County.

In announcing the change, the County has provided the following documentation to more than 160,000 residents receiving County-contracted waste collection services:

  • Direct mail correspondence advising residents of the change effective May 2, 2016;
  • Two sets of door hangers providing residents of their new collection service day in(English) and (Spanish);
  • An online address lookup tool where residents can input their current address to obtain their new service days; and
  • A dedicated program website, onceaweek.mypgc.us with detailed information regarding the impending service changes.

All residents receiving County-contracted trash and recycling collection services will receive one, wheeled 64-gallon toter/cart at no additional cost. Delivery of the toter/carts will begin June 2016 and is expected to last through the end of the year.  Click here to view more information about the container.

For more information, including specifics about the service change, a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions FAQs, the online address lookup tool, visit onceweek.mypgc.us or contact CountyClick 3-1-1.
