What can I do with yard trim in my own yard?

How do I have my yard trim collected at my curb?

May I drop off my yard trim?

Yes, you may bring yard trim to our Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station.

There is no charge for material that you bring from your own home.

Commercial haulers, contractors and landscapers must pay a yard trim disposal fee.

May I receive leaf vacuuming?

The Highway Maintenance Section (Department of Transportation, Division of Operations) provides leaf vacuuming to certain areas of Montgomery County.
