Bagged leaf collection season starts Monday, October 28, 2013 and continues through Monday, January 6, 2014.  The Bureau of Solid Waste will collect bagged leaves every Monday throughout the season.

Solid Waste crews will collect 20 bags of leaves from each address every Monday.  Residents must call 311 before Sunday at 10 p.m. for the following Monday collection to schedule a pickup. Residents may make multiple appointments for up to two months prior to the pick up date.

The Bureau of Solid Waste will also continue to collect bagged leaves on the regularly scheduled trash collection day.  Solid Waste crews will collect 5 bags of leaves from each address every week.  Residents need to put leaves in clear or labeled bags and place them at their regular mixed refuse collection location and not in the public right-of-way. With Monday collections and regular mixed refuse collections, the Bureau of Solid Waste will collect, in total, 25 bags of leaves per week per resident.

Residents can also drop off bagged leaves at five Bureau of Solid Waste locations. More info and locations can be found at:

ALSO – KEEP THOSE STORM DRAINS CLEAN

Leaves, rain and storm drains are a bad mix. Baltimore City has over 52,000 such storm drain inlets and keeping them clear of leaves, trash and other debris is crucial in preventing localized flooding. Sweep along your sidewalks, curbs, gutters and alleys. Report blocked storm drains that you cannot clear to 311 so that DPW crews can address them. The Bureau of Solid Waste collects bagged leaves every Monday throughout the leaf season with the exception of Holidays. Residents must call 311 before Sunday at 10 p.m. for the following Monday collection to schedule a pickup.
