Announcement regarding Leonardtown trash contractor


Announcement regarding Leonardtown trash contractor

On Tuesday May 1, 2018, Goode Companies, Inc. acquired the Town’s trash contractor Affordable Refuse and Recycling, Inc.  

Customers should not see any significant changes to their service.  Collection days will remain the same.  You may occasionally see Goode trucks throughout town and will likely see new Goode toters and dumpsters slowly being introduced to the customer base.

Service charges will increase on July 1, 2018 by 2% but this increase is unrelated to the company acquisition and is in accordance with terms of the existing contract, terms which now apply to Goode Companies, Inc.

Goode Companies, Inc. served as the Leonardtown trash contractor from 2007 to 2014.  They are familiar with this service territory and are excited to return. 

Please continue to direct any questions or concerns to the Town Office at 301-475-9791.  Town staff members are able to expedite communication with a dedicated company representative to ensure prompt service.
