MEDIA RELEASE
Yard Waste/ Stormwater Update
Effective January 4, 2016


Frederick, MD – December 29, 2015 In an effort to adhere to Federal, State and County imposed guidelines and meet the requirements of our National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit The City of Frederick is requiring all yard waste, including leaves and grass, be placed in acceptable recyclable bags or containers beginning January 4, 2016.

Acceptable bags or containers for yard waste:
• Bag must be paper - no plastic of any kind.
• Container must be 35 gallon or less and used for storage of referenced yard waste.

Leaves, grass and other organic material are considered pollutants under the NPDES. The NPDES Stormwater Permit Program, established by the EPA in 1990, is focused on and intended to reduce pollutants entering our waterways. It regulates discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), construction activities, industrial activities, and those designated by EPA due to water quality impacts.

The City’s Annual Leaf Campaign will not be affected. During the months of October, November and December leaves may be deposited at the curb for collection in accordance with The City of Fredericks schedule. Leaves may also be put in acceptable bags/containers for twice monthly Yard Waste Collection during this period.

Any leaves or grass deposited into the street between the months of January and September will be considered in violation of the City’s Charter & Code and subject to a fine not to exceed $300.00.

Residents can contact the Department of Public Works at 301-600-1440 to determine their schedule.
