2013 Annual Leaf Collection Campaign
Frederick, MD -- The City of Frederick Department of Public Works will begin the 2013 Annual Leaf Collection Campaign on Monday, October 28, 2013 and continue through Friday, December 20, 2013. Vacuum leaf collectors and rubber tire loaders with dump trucks will be used to collect the leaves.
Leaves will be collected in all areas at least 3 times throughout this period. All City residents may begin to set out leaves for collection on Sunday, October 27, 2013. The last date for residents to set leaves out for collection is December 15, 2013. Residents are asked not to rake large leaf piles into the streets PRIOR to October 27th to avoid overloading the street sweepers.
Friendly reminders from DPW:
• Leaves can be put out with your twice a month yard waste if put in acceptable bags.
• Spraying the piles down with water will help keep them from blowing away during periods of high winds.
• Please use off street parking during this time if available.
For more information regarding leaf and/or yard waste collection please contact the Department of Public Works at 301-600-1440.
