Single Family/Townhouse: Trash, Recycling &Storage of Trash

Trash disposal and storage of trash cans has become a problem in Spring Ridge. We want to remind residents of the rules and procedures to dispose of trash and to store trash cans in the community.
The rule states: “ARTICLE IX, Section 9.02 (e): "Trash and garbage containers shall not be permitted to remain in public view except on days of trash collection and after 6 pm on days prior to trash collection. Trash shall be stored in closed metal containers or containers constructed of other suitable materials. No incinerator shall be kept or maintained on any Lot.”

  • We ask residents that when disposing of household trash to put the trash bags inside a trash container before putting the trash out for collection at the curbside. Individual trash bags should not be put out on the curbside. Animals will get into the trash bags and spread trash all over the community making the community look very unkempt.
  • The same applies to your recycling— during recycle collection days make sure the recycling is secured inside the recycle container so not to blow all over the community.
  • Trash cans (recycle cans included) should only be put out on the street for collection at 6 pm on days prior to collection. All trash containers should be put away from “public view” no later than the end of the trash collection day. When not in use trash cans should be kept in the garage, backyard or screened from public view. These rules apply to regular household trash cans and recycle cans.

With the exception of holidays and inclement weather, here is the Single Family/Townhouse trash collection schedule:

  • Household Trash—Monday & Thursday
  • Yard Waste—Yard Waste is finished for this season and will resume again on March 21st. 
  • Recycling—(glass, paper, plastic, etc.) is not a service offered by Spring Ridge. It is fully serviced by Frederick County. Frederick County Recycling can be contacted at  301-600-2960 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
