Because our recyclables are taken to the Montgomery County Transfer Station, the Town of Washington Grove's recycling requirements/restrictions are the same as Montgomery County. Please click on the link below for further details about recycling of glass, plastic, cans, mixed paper and cardboard.
Montgomery County Solid Waste
Brush trimmings, not to exceed 3 inches in diameter by 4 feet in length, must be securely tied in bundles not exceeding 30 inches in diameter. Grass clippings and leaves must be placed in open containers or brown paper bags. Grass clipping containers and bags must bear the County sticker.
Brush, trimmings or debris cannot be part of the leaf windrows. No pickup will occur on Railroad Street, 2nd Avenue, 3rd Avenue, 4th Avenue, and 5th Avenue. This service is typically suspended late November through early March. Town maintenance will continue to collect your reasonably-sized brush piles during this period.
As a courtesy to Town residents, the Town maintenance staff has always picked up brush piles, reasonable in size, when placed "curbside". So, what's reasonable in size mean? Piles that are the size of a small pickup truck would be considered unreasonable in size. Recyclable yard waste is a service that we pay for in our Refuse/Recycling Contractor contract.
Please... If you use a lawn service or landscape contractor, please make sure that they understand that removal of large amounts of yard waste is their responsibility.
Roy McCathran, the Town's first mayor, referred poetically to Washington Grove as "a town within a forest, an oasis of tranquility and a rustic jewel in the diadem of the great free state of Maryland."
