The Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services provides refuse collection services to a portion of the county’s single-family residents, predominantly in the downcounty area. Residents living in the remainder of the county must subscribe for refuse collection services with private collectors or obtain service through their homeowner associations. People living in municipalities must contact their local jurisdiction for more information. For questions about trash, call the county at 240-777-0311 or visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/solidwaste. To drop off trash, call the Shady Grove Processing Facility & Transfer Station in Derwood at 240-777-6560.
