TRASH RULES & REGULATIONS
This is a reminder that following the HOA house rules and Montgomery County laws, all residents are reminded to place household garbage in sealed trash bags which must then be placed in a rigid trash container with a lid.
Each resident must provide his/her own trash containers. Pursuant to Montgomery County statues, all containers for the storage of trash or garbage must be rigid metal or plastic containers having tight-fitting, overlapping lids with a maximum capacity of 15 to 45 gallons. Disposable plastic liners, if used, must be made of heavy, waterproof paper or plastic, and must not exceed 45 gallons in capacity. Such container liner must be kept in approved containers as stated above when storing trash between collections.
The trash container must be placed outdoors for collection on the morning of scheduled collection days which are Tuesdays and Fridays. Under no circumstances should bags of trash be placed outdoors for collection.
Please note residents who violate these County laws are subject to County inspection and being issued civil citations that carry fines of up to $500.
The community’s trash service provider, J & J Trash Service, provides free individual bulk trash pick-up to all community residents. Individual resident bulk trash must be scheduled in advance. Bulk trash does not include yard waste, or any items Montgomery County will recycle. J & J Trash Service can be reached at 301-898-2109 or 800-465-2350.
Trash Pick-Up is Tuesday and Friday; Recycle by Montgomery County on Wednesdays
