Leaf Collection – Bagged leaves are picked up on Wednesdays with other yard waste.

  • Leaf vacuuming service is provided by the Department of Public Works from September 15th – January 15th.
  • Leaf vacuum collection dates will be posted in the Town Crier. Signs are posted prior to collection the following week.
  • Rake leaves to the curb. Pile leaves away from cars and storm drains. The leaf vacuum cannot reach around cars.
  • Remove tree limbs, rocks and other debris from leaves to be collected. They can damage the equipment and cause delays.
  • Noise and dust may be noticeable. Dry conditions generate more dust. We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • If you bag leaves, please put them out on Wednesdays with the yard waste. Do not put them out with regular trash.
  • Leaf vacuum service is provided only in the fall.



The Department of Public Works maintains the town's urban forest by pruning, planting and removing trees as necessary. The town continues its partnership with the Maryland Urban and Community Forest Committee and the Maryland DNR Forest Service, by participating in its People Loving and Nurturing Trees (P.L.A.N.T.) Community  Awards Program.  Annual flower rotations are installed and maintained throughout the town.
