Disposing of Tree Debris in Montgomery County

Trees or branches may be disposed as follows:

On Private Property:

Tree debris on private property will be collected on a residents’ regular recycling day if it is no more than four-feet in length and four inches in diameter.

Bag, bundle, or containerize tree branches and limbs, keeping bundles less than 45 pounds and less than 30 inches in diameter.

Tree debris that is too large for curbside collection, or cannot be bagged, bundled, or containerized can be recycled at no charge to single family home residents (up to 500 pounds) at the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station, located at 16101 Frederick Road, Derwood. Check the County’s website at for hours of operation.

Another option is to contact a private company, such a tree service, landscaping or lawn service, for assistance in removing and disposing of storm debris.

Residents may want to check with their home insurance company, which may cover storm debris removal and disposal.

In the Public Right-of-Way:

Montgomery County Department of Transportation crews are collecting trees and branches that have fallen into the public right-of-way.

To report tree debris in the public right-of-way, call 3-1-1.
