The City of Hagerstown and Washington County are extending special programs to continue helping residents clean up storm debris from this week.

- Trees, brush and other yard waste will be accepted at no charge through Saturday, June 27, at the Washington County rubble landfill off Kemps Mill Road.

Waste can be dropped off at the landfill between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

- The City of Hagerstown scheduled a third special curbside pickup in the North and West Ends for tree limbs and brush debris.

Bundled tree limbs and brush debris must be no longer than 3 feet long and 3 inches in diameter.

The yard waste must be set out Tuesday night to be picked up early Wednesday by Browning Ferris Inc.

The storm debris curbside pickups are for the area west of Oak Hill Avenue west to the intersection of Wesel and Burhans boulevards and between Northern Avenue and Prospect Avenue.


The city's regular yard waste curbside pickup will still be done this week for the entire city. Yard waste is to be set out Tuesday after 4 p.m. to be picked up early Wednesday.

- Tree limbs no longer than 5 feet long and trimmed can be taken to trash bins at Haven Lutheran Church, 1035 Haven Road, and Elgin Park Playground, at Elgin and Burhans boulevards.

The bins will be available until noon on Wednesday. Do not put garbage, grass clippings and construction materials in the dumpsters.
