DEP Programs and Services (COVID-19 Updates)

As Montgomery County takes steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, we at DEP are working hard to remain operational for all services.

Because most of us are teleworking, our offices at 255 Rockville Pike and the Executive Office Building are not open to the public. You can still reach us through 311 (311 in the County or 240-777-0311) or through the contacts below.

If you need to drop off something at DEP’s offices, please contact Patty Bubar at 240-777-7786.


All trash and recycling collections are on a normal schedule.

Shady Grove Transfer Station

Effective March 30, 2020 the new temporary hours for the Shady Grove Transfer Station are as follows:

  • 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Daily - Scale House at the Recycling Center and the Public Unloading Facility
  • 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday - Trash and municipal solid waste Scale House (Shady Grove Road entrance)
We have modified the Transfer Station hours in an effort to minimize traffic and exposure of our customers and employees to the COVID-19 virus. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach us through 311 (311 in the County or 240-777-0311).
