Roll-off boxes may be utilized for the deposition of furniture, appliances, textiles, food waste, carpet, padding, insulation, sheet rock, etc.
Portable restrooms are also currently located at the following locations: St. Georges Island Improvement Association property, Murray Rd. and St. Clement's Island Potomac River Museum parking lot.
Yard Waste Drop-off Locations
St. Mary's County Department of Public Works and Transportation has also established two locations that will accept yard waste only, free of charge. Yard waste includes logs, limbs, stumps, brush, and leaves. All other solid waste must go to the landfill and convenience centers. Look for the "Yard Debris Burn Site" signs located at each entrance. Beginning September 3, 2006, both sites will be open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM seven days a week until further notice.
The two sites are located as follows: the Kessler Development Company sight, adjacent to Kessler Body and Equipment Company on Three Notch Road in Dameron; and the Knott's site on Piney Point Road, MD Route 249, ½ mile south of Happyland Road in Valley Lee.
