Frequently Asked Questions

The Montgomery County South Transfer Station at 1001 Encrete Lane, Moraine, 45439 (937-225-4999) has drop-off hours for household hazardous waste, appliances, and other items.

Many municipalities (including Dayton, Kettering, and Huber Heights) have yard waste collection services. You can also take yard waste to the South Transfer Station at no charge to Montgomery County residents if it contains no trash or other waste.

County residents can take up to 10 used tires at a time to the South Transfer Station at 1001 Encrete Lane, Moraine, 45439 (937-225-4999). The first 10 tires are free to Montgomery County residents. There is a charge for disposal of additional tires and for tires brought by out-of-county residents.

Include some information on hauling/transporting tires, example text below:

Ohio Law prohibits anyone from hauling scrap tires in excess of 10 without a hauling license. Contact Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County at (937) 225-4362 for more information on scrap tire hauling requirements.

Yes. The Montgomery County Material Reuse Facility (McMRF) located near the South Transfer Station, accepts construction materials, art supplies, tools and office equipment including working computers. These are then made available to non-profit groups for reuse.

Open dumping means the depositing of solid wastes or infectious wastes into a body of water, or onto the surface of the ground at a site that is not a licensed disposal facility. Open dumping is prohibited under state law.

Infectious waste is anything likely to have been contaminated with infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, etc. This includes sharps (needles, syringes, scalpel blades, etc), medical lab waste, bodily organs or tissues and blood-soaked materials.

Infectious waste is treated in special devices called autoclaves which produce enough heat and pressure to render infectious agents harmless. After treatment, it is disposed of in a licensed solid waste facility. Most doctor and dentist offices contract with a specially licensed transporter for removal and treatment of their infectious waste.

Sharps should be placed in a hard plastic container (example: bleach bottle with cap), labeled “sharps,” and then put out with the regular trash. Other household infectious waste should be double-bagged and then may be added to the regular trash.

If it produces 50 pounds or more of infectious waste per month, it is considered a Large Quantity Generator. (Please contact Public Health with detailed questions on the different requirements for Large and Small Quantity Generators.)

That depends. If it is infectious waste from a household, it is acceptable for it to be properly added to regular trash. However, if you see red or yellow containers with biohazard symbols dumped in the open, that is illegal. Report it to Public Health at 937-225-4362.
