Seasonal Leaf Collection Schedule
Use the map and schedule to determine the dates for your area.
Leaf Collection Tips:
Residents should rake leaves into the gutter or immediately adjacent to the pavement if no curb or gutter exists. Leaves can be raked anytime immediately before or during collection week. This avoids the accumulation of leaves near and on the streets, which can lead to fire hazards or grass being damaged if left too long. Limbs, rocks and other heavy objects must be removed, and leaves should not be placed in plastic bags. Residents who prefer to bag their leaves may place the leaves in biodegradable kraft paper bags and place them at the curb for collection on their regular weekly yard waste collection day.
If City Leaf Collection Crews are unable to complete an area during their collection week, crews will continue working on the unfinished portion on the following Saturday.
DO: Place leaves at the curb by 6 a.m. on the collection dates. Sticks and all other objects must be removed from the leaf piles.
DO NOT: Use any plastic bags.
In addition to vacuuming leaves, the City's recycling program will collect leaves and grass that are in biodegradable bags or easily emptied containers.
Rockville also encourages you to use alternative methods for getting rid of leaves to save collection and disposal costs and to help the environment. Some alternatives are to mulch your leaves or to compost them.
