Recycling Cans at center

Buddy Attick Park Drop-Off Center has those familiar 95 gallon blue rolling carts where you can put all your co-mingled recycling, but, there is so much more that you can recycle at the center!

oil recycling

Recycle automotive oil, oil filters, and antifreeze in the larger shed. Pour the oil and antifreeze carefully to avoid spills and close the lids on the receptacles. Put the empty containers in the trash to the right of the shed.


Due to a business decision the Paper Retriever program will not be running at public works or the Greenbelt East locations. Until a new contractor can be located, please take all excess paper products to the Prince George's County Landfill's Convenience Center. For more information visit:


Clothes Donation shed



The small shed is for all used clothing no matter what state it is in, as well as shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, drapes, and stuffed toys.

Please help us by putting the proper recyclables in the appropriate receptacles and closing those receptacles when done. Remember that items should be loose, not in plastic bags, and other materials are not accepted. Please be sure to flatten all cardboard boxes.
