Yard Waste Collection

The City of Frederick offers a year round yard waste collection program with twice a month collection to each NAC Area.

In an effort to divert waste, on January 17, 2006, the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners enacted a new Yard Waste Disposal Ordinance; effective May 1, 2006, yard waste disposal was eliminated from the refuse disposal area of the County Landfill (County Ordinance 06-03-399). As a result, yard waste may no longer be combined with regular trash and must be disposed of separately. In response to these changes the City of Frederick has established a curbside yard waste collection program for all but commercial customers, as defined in Section 10-1 of the City Code.

You can find a schedule for yard waste collection based on your NAC in the left hand panel.  For additional yard waste collection program information please call the communications desk at 301-600-1440.
