World Class Service
Providing efficient and responsive services to the residents of Bowie is one of the highest priorities of the City of Bowie government. Whether it is twice a week trash collection, snow removal, policing, services for seniors, or one of the many other services offered by the City, the aim is to provide 'world-class' service to all.
Some services are provided automatically, others need to be specifically requested. For example, recycling is collected weekly according to the recycling schedule and yard waste is collected every Wednesday throughout the year. However, if you need to dispose of tires or appliances, you must request a Special Pickup. And if you would like take advantage of the family counseling services offered by Bowie Youth & Family Services, that would need to be coordinated through that division.
Each City service has a page or multiple pages on this website. Follow the links to learn more about them.
To request basic services, use our Service Request System, or call the Department or Division that manages the service. You can find contact information for each office on their webpage or use our Directory. Call 301-809-2344 for Public Works services.
