Reduce the Risk for Trash Fires

Did you know that certain types of materials, when improperly placed into the trash, can be significant fire hazards, capable of starting fires?

Materials such as rechargeable batteries, propane and oxygen tanks, butane lighters, ashes from fireplaces and barbecue grills, and other types of hazardous materials are capable of starting fires when

  • mixed in loads of waste and picked up by refuse collection trucks
  • waste is transported in rail cars on the way to waste processing or disposal facilities; and while
  • waste is being processed at Montgomery County’s Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station or at the Resource Recovery Facility

Therefore, to reduce the risk for trash fires, DO NOT place the following materials in your trash

These items should be properly disposed through Montgomery County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, or other special collection processes available at the Montgomery County Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station, located at 16101 Frederick Road in Derwood.
