Effective Monday, April 6, 2020 we will stop accepting cash and checks at the Shady Grove Transfer Station Scale House. We will continue to accept credit cards and corporate accounts.
Effective March 30, 2020 Shady Grove Transfer Station hours are:
Only come to the Shady Grove Transfer Station if you do not have County-provided or private trash collection. If you do not have County-provided or private trash collection and need to dispose of trash at the Transfer Station,
DO NOT bring any waste that does not require immediate disposal and
DO NOT bring any other waste such as construction debris, bulky/large items, or large amounts of trash from cleaning your house or property (e.g. spring cleaning).
If you live in a single family home, the County provides recycling and yard trim pickup. You will be instructed to place this recyclable material (green waste, yard trim, recyclables) at the curb for the next regular County collection.
Scrap metal should not be brought to the Transfer Station. Call 311 to arrange for pickup or work with your private trash provider.
We modified Transfer Station hours and operations to minimize exposure of our customers and employees to COVID-19.
Effective immediately, webstore order fulfillment will be delayed while Montgomery County employees are on a telework schedule. Fulfillment will resume when County employees return to administrative offices. Check the County website for the latest news and information: https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov.

Collect your recyclables in a small cardboard box. If we haven't delivered your new bin by your recycling day, set the cardboard box out at the curb, just as you would do with your bin.
