As the new leaf collection season approaches fast, the City’s Public Works is planning to end the Smart leaf compost program soon.

Smartleaf® compost is also called College Park’s Black Gold by those who have used it. It is rich in nutrients, so it will keep your flowers and grass happy!

The Public works make their deliveries on Thursdays and Fridays. The charges are $18.55 per cubic yard (including tax) and delivery within College Park is $20.00 if we delivery between 1-6 cubic yards, and $30.00 if they deliver between 7-12 cubic yards. You can pay the driver cash (exact change, please), leave a check for the driver to pick up, or you can drop payment off to Public Works, or they can process a credit card payment with their card payment providers, whatever is more convenient for you.

Let them also know if you have a specific delivery spot in mind; normally the driver will just back into the driveway as far as possible before unloading the compost; the driver cannot drive across the lawn or unload the compost on the sidewalk or in the street.

Call Stacey King, City’s Department of Public Works Admin. Assist./Recycling Coordinator, if you plan to order compost before the program end. Stacey’s phone numbers are 240-487-3590 (main) and 240-487-3593 (direct).
