Fall has arrived and soon we’ll see falling leaves wherever there are trees in Baltimore City. Leaf collection season begins Monday, October 26, 2020, and will continue through Monday, January 4, 2021.

Beginning October 2, residents can call 311 to schedule special Monday pickups of up to 20 bags of leaves. Residents can make multiple appointments until all the bags are gone. Residents must call before 6pm on Sunday to schedule a collection for the following Monday.  Citizens may make multiple appointments for up to two months prior to the pick-up date.

The Department of Public Works (DPW) Bureau of Solid Waste will also collect bagged leaves on regularly scheduled trash collection days. Solid Waste crews will collect up to 5 bags of leaves from each address every week.
