Our Public Works crew will be diligently recording your tote/bin ID numbers to match-up with your address, and affixing a “Town Property” decal on those that have not received one. You can take your recycle bins back any time after 3:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon. Thank you for your cooperation.

Do you have an old photograph taken in Upper Marlboro before 1945? If you do, then Darnall’s Chance House Museum wants to see it! The photograph can be of anything or anyone from Upper Marlboro’s past – a building, special event, tobacco warehouse, fishing boat, farm, family picture – you name it.
