Renting a truck on a weekend for moving a large load that might be over 500 pounds?

Come on Saturday, when the truck scales are open from 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Staff working on Sundays are directed to turn away loads over 500 pounds, for which we are required to charge under the County code.

Avoid the weekend crowds

The Transfer Station's Public Unloading Facility and Recycling lots are open until 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, in addition to the usual daytime hours. There is very light traffic in the evening. So, if you want to avoid long lines, try a weekday evening trip (loads must be under 500 pounds).

Store your recycling bin out of the rain. Though the bin has drain holes, dump out even small amounts of water. Do this weekly. See more mosquito-related tips.

Deer rescue at the Oaks Landfill

Last Friday, County and State personnel responded to help a deer in distress that had somehow gotten into the fenced lagoon area at the Oaks Landfill leachate pre-treatment facility.

The deer had slipped into a lined lagoon. It could not get out because the liner was too slippery. Fortunately, that lagoon had only clean storm water in it.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources representative chased the deer around in the water with our small boat to tire it out. He was then able to capture it.

The men took the deer to a safe location to untie it, and it went on its way.
