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.

When you report a broken cart, we will schedule a repair appointment for you.
On the day of your appointment, leave your empty cart at the curb for our staff. You do not need to be at home.
We issue only one cart per house. If your weekly paper recyclables exceed the cart capacity,
call us for assistance.
These wheeled carts are for
paper recycling only. Use
blue bins for setting out cans, bottles, and jars for curbside recycling collection.
Sorry, we do not offer wheeled carts
for paper recycling in alternate colors.
