Spring Leaf Collection Starts Next Week in Rockville

The annual leaf pick-up begins Monday.

Curbside leaf pick-ups start next week in Rockville, hopefully well removed from the snowy mix that set spring off to a mushy start.

The Department of Public Works will start collecting leaf debris Monday. Each year the city provides residents with one leaf pick-up during a two-week period in April and announced the following schedule for this year:

  • April 1–2: Area 1—East of Rockville Pike and south of Broadwood Road, including the Twinbrook neighborhood
  • April 3-4: Area 2—East of Rockville Pike and north of Broadwood Road
  • April 5–8: Area 3—West of Rockville Pike from Falls Road north  through King Farm
  • April 9–10: Area 4—Neighborhoods west of Interstate 270 
  • April 11–12: Area 5—West of Rockville Pike and south of Falls Road     

The schedule and map can be found online at www.rockvillemd.gov/residents/leaf.htm

Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb or next to the pavement, if no curb exists., by 6 a.m. on the collection day.

The leaves should not be placed in plastic bags. Biodegradeable paper bags or 32-gallon containers are OK.
