Starting Monday, November 5, curbside leaf collection will begin (weather permitting). Look for signs posted in your neighborhood for collection dates or later in the month visit and click on Curbside Leaf Collection on the left side under Latest News for the collection schedule.

Until curbside leaf vacuum collection begins, 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 City beige yard waste cart (available for purchase), paper yard waste bags, or your own reusable containers with a City yard waste sticker attached (stickers are available for free at City Hall and DPW).

Please do not use City-issued green refuse or blue recycling carts for yard waste or it will not be collected. The weekly soft yard waste collection will end on November 5.

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.
