The Montgomery County Department of Transportation Division of Highway Services (DHS) has completed the special, one-time only, storm tree debris collection from County-maintained roads. Crews drove the County’s 217 snow plow routes and collected debris within the County right-of-way resulting from the destructive derecho storm that occurred on June 29.
Residents may still continue to bundle their debris and use County-provided trash and yard trim curbside collection, or drop off disposables at the Transfer Station. For information on preparing tree limbs, branches and other yard trim for collection, visit: www.montgomerycountymd.gov/solidwaste.
It is illegal for contractors hired by residents to place tree branches and limbs in County or State right-of-ways. Residents should ensure that their arrangements with contractors include removal and proper disposal of the materials.
For additional information, check the 311 Call Center’s website at www.MC311.com or call 311, or 240-777-0311 from outside the County, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Residents with questions about State roads or State road right-of-ways may contact the State Highway Administration (SHA) at http://roads.maryland.gov.
