Bad Winter Weather Sometimes Leads to Service Changes, So DEP Recommends Signing Up for Alerts Regarding Collections and Transfer Station Hours

Bad winter weather sometimes requires Montgomery County departments to alter their service schedules. This can happen with County-operated trash and recycling collections, or with operation of the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station in Derwood. The best way to be quickly made aware of those type of service changes is to sign up for Department of Environmental Protection Alerts.

After subscribing to alerts, residents will be noticed if collections will be late or pushed back to another day. They also will be informed if operating hours at the Transfer Station will temporarily change.
