Gaithersburg Spring Loose Leaf Collection Starts March 27


Spring loose leaf collection for single family and townhouse owners in the City runs March 27 through April 14, weather permitting. Place leaves at the street curb by 7 a.m. on your regular recycling day.

Before you begin cleaning up your yard, please consider leaving the leaves until after temperatures are constantly above 50 degrees. Many butterflies, bees and other beneficial pollinators are currently overwintering in the dead leaves and hollowed out stems of last year’s plants. Learn more about the benefits of leaving the leaves here

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.

We are lucky to have this service in our community. Our Kentlands streets are lined with trees.

That is a pretty big vacuum and looks perfect for cleaning up the leaves around Gaithersburg.

We don't have loose leaf collection in my community.  Everything is put in trash bins and needs to rolled to the curb.  Fortunately, I have a lawn guy that handles that for me.
