Collectors and Inspectors on the Move!

Map of Montgomery County, Maryland, roads 

The use of maps helps our collectors and inspectors traverse the many roads in Montgomery County. We also embrace new technology, like GPS units and aerial photos, to find our way around the maze.

Collection route boundaries are designed to balance workloads. Collection routes within each boundary are designed for safety and efficiency. Did you know that solid waste trucks only make right turns? (unless it’s not possible).

Clearly marked streets and properties are essential not only for Solid Waste services, but for public safety as well. Could we find your house in an emergency?
