    Snow Update for January 27, 2015

    The Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station will open at 10 a.m. today.

    How to dispose of a broken snowblower



    With snow in the weather forecast, here's a timely note from our inbox:
    How do I dispose of or recycle a broken snowblower?

    If you receive recycling service from Montgomery County, you may request a curbside scrap metal collection for snowblowers (and similar lawn and garden tools). If the snowblower is gas-powered, drain it of fluids, as for a lawnmower.

    We also accept scrap metal from County residents and businesses directly at our Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station.

    To check whether you have Montgomery County-provided recycling service, use our Collection Day and Service lookup.

    Thanks for your question, J.!
