Fall curbside leaf collection is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 5, 2012, and end on Friday, January 4, 2013. Leaf collection may continue further into January depending on weather conditions during and after the scheduled collection period. The Four Cities sweeper is scheduled to be in College Park the week of December 24-31.
Each of the seven service areas will be scheduled for collection a minimum of four times.
Here is the tentative schedule for our area in north College Park:
SA-5 (Rhode Island Ave, west side) Wed—Thu, Nov 14—15
SA-6 (Rhode Island Ava, east side) & SA-7 (North End) Fri, Nov 16
The schedule is based on average seasonal weather. Unpredictable weather conditions will affect the planned schedule and will likely warrant schedule revisions; therefore only the November 2012 calendar is included in the Leaf Collection Plan. The schedule will be updated weekly on Friday afternoons and revisions will be posted on the City website. Schedule revisions will also be provided to office staff at City Hall and Davis Hall who answers in-coming telephone calls.
Prior to the scheduled collection time, signs will be posted in neighborhoods indicating when collections are scheduled. Residents are advised to avoid mixing materials such as bamboo, vines, metal, rocks, glass and plastics with leaves set out for curbside collection. These materials damage the leaf machines and disrupt service.
