Curbside leaf collection will begin Monday, November 1 (weather permitting). Look for signs posted in your neighborhood for collection dates.

Until then, residents should continue to set out soft yard waste (grass, leaves and soft vegetative waste) on regularly scheduled refuse and recycling collection days. You may use the beige yard waste cart which is available for purchase, paper yard waste bags, or your own reusable containers with a yard waste sticker attached (stickers are available for free at the Department of Public Works).

Please do not use the City issued green refuse or blue recycling carts for yard waste or it will not be collected. Woody yard waste: brush, branches, sticks, and shrubs are collected year-round by appointment on Thursdays and Fridays; call 240-487-3590 or email before setting items to the curb.
