Yard & Leaf Waste

  • Yard Waste/ Stormwater Updated Information

The City of Frederick Department of Public Works will begin the 2015 Annual Leaf Collection Campaign on Monday, October 26, 2015 through Friday, December 18, 2015. Vacuum leaf collectors, street sweepers and rubber tire loaders with dump trucks will be used to collect the leaves.

Leaves will be collected in all areas at least four times throughout this period. All City residents may begin to set out leaves for collection on Sunday, October 25, 2015. The last date for residents to set leaves out for collection is December 13, 2015.

Residents are asked not to rake large leaf piles into the streets PRIOR to October 26th 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.
