Residents that are receiving storm cleanup of tree debris after the storm will be able to track cleanup crew progress starting Wednesday.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will provide special storm tree debris collections—on County maintained roads only—throughout the County starting July 11. Residents will be able to see the progress of crews using the County’s online snow map. The map shows the County’s 217 snow plow routes.

The tree debris pickup is a special one-time only service resulting from the storm. To ensure pick up, residents who live on streets with County-provided snow removal service should place only their storm tree debris in the public right-of-way before July 11. They should ensure that sidewalks, driveways and roads are not blocked.

Residents are reminded that once their storm tree debris is placed on the right-of-way, it still may take several days to be picked up due to the volume of debris and the number of homes involved.

Residents may also continue to bundle their debris and use County-provided trash and yard trim curbside collection or drop off disposables at the Transfer Station. For information on cleanup instructions for fallen tree limbs visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/solidwaste.
