Reduce the Risk for Trash Fires. Keep Certain Materials Out of Your Trash Can.


Reduce the Risk for Trash Fires. 
Keep Certain Materials Out of Your Trash Can. 

Fires can occur in piles of trash as trash is collected in trash trucks, and when trash is delivered and aggregated at the Transfer Station and the Resource Recovery Facility for processing. Certain materials can individually pose a fire hazard.  Other items pose a risk for fire when they come into contact with other materials. 

To reduce the risk of trash fires at your home, in our trash collection vehicles, or at our disposal facilities, please keep the following materials or items out of your trash:

·        Hazardous materials
·        Chemicals
·        Gasoline and other flammable liquids
·        Oil-based paints
·        Rechargeable batteries (containing heavy metals, including lithium)
·        Ash from fireplaces or fire pits or barbeque grills
 More information on ash disposal

To dispose of these items safely, use our Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Program or Special Collection Processes at the Montgomery County Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station. For details, visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/hazardouswaste or call 311 (inside Montgomery County) or 240-777-0311 (outside of Montgomery County).
