Montgomery County’s Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station Will Resume Normal Operations with Modified Hours on Friday, June 5, as County Continues Phase I Reopening

For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 4, 2020

Montgomery County’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on Friday, June 5, will resume normal operations at the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station. However, customers using the facility must continue to practice social distancing and wear face coverings.

The resumption of normal operations means the transfer station will again accept yard waste and bulk waste from County residents and businesses. Only waste generated in the County can be brought to the facility.

Starting June 5, the hours of the facility will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (at both entrances) and to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays (Route 355 entrance only).

Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, DEP had changed operations and hours to protect residents and employees.  On May 28, County Executive Marc Elrich issued an Executive Order that started a move to Phase I of the County’s reopening plan.

Residential curbside yard waste recycling collection services have continued during the health crisis.

Residents who have County trash collection services can call 311 to request bulk pick-ups. Each household is allowed a maximum of five bulk pick-ups per year.
