In the single family homes and townhomes, trash pickup is done by the City of Frederick every Friday. Trash should be secured in appropriate containers and placed at the curb the night before scheduled pickup. (In the townhomes, place trash in the containers in the trash corrals). Condo owners also have trash corrals. Check with your condo association to ask about scheduled pickups. Do NOT put out trash any day other than the scheduled pickup.
Recycling is picked up on alternate Thursdays. (See the Calendar for dates). Place the marked recycling bins at the curb. The bins are free (one per household) and are available from Frederick County at https://frederickcountymd.gov/6842/Carts-Bins-for-Collecting-Recyclables
. Bins should not be put out earlier than the night before pickup, and must be stored out of sight within a day after pickup.
Beginning in October 2018, the City of Frederick will pick up yard waste every week, on the same day trash is picked up. Yard waste (including leaves) must be placed in yard-waste bags or reusable containers and placed on the curb in front of your house. Again, please do not put out large bags of waste except on pickup days. The City has ceased pickup of leaves at the curb. Leaves must be bagged with other yard waste and put out as noted.
The OFHOA Board of Directors is considering doing an annual Bulk Trash Pickup (we did one in 2018). In the meantime, you must arrange and pay to remove bulk trash items. Do NOT place these items on the curb or in trash corrals, as you will face a fine and the cost of removal.
