Leaf Collection

As Scheduled the 2017 Leaf Collection Program has ended.  Due to the unseasonable weather we have enjoyed into December of 2017, many residents have requested an extension to the village's leaf collection program.  Unfortunately, the organic landfill that the village uses has closed for the season.  This restricts the ability of the village or our waste hauler DC Trash in offering a program extension.

Instead of disposing of leaves, you might consider mulching them with a lawn mower.  Mowing is generally less labor intensive than raking and it provides additional nutrients to your lawn and landscape.  Leaf mulch can be left on the lawn or added to landscaped areas for a healthy boost to next seasons growth.  Furthermore, you can fold leaf mulch into gardens and flower beds as a great source of natural fertilizer.

Leaf burning is prohibited by village ordinance (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 12-27). It is also important to remember that leaves must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 9-45), so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.
