Ocean Pines Leaf Clean Up Options
Bag your leaves for Pick-up.
WASTE MANAGEMENT: Anytime, Waste Management customers can have up to four bags of leaves each pick-up in addition to regular trash pickup. We encourage customers of Waste Management to remove up to 8 bags a week. These can be in paper or plastic bags. On the South Side of Route 90 Bridge, Waste Management pick -ups are on Tuesdays and Fridays. On the North Side of Route 90 Bridge, Waste Management pick- ups are on Mondays and Thursdays.
BAGGED LEAVES CURBSIDE PICKUP: Beginning Monday, November 18, 2013 and running in sections opposite days of the WM trash trucks. Ocean Pines Public Works will be collecting any amount of bagged leaves on the North or South side for all residents. In addition, branches will be picked up if tied in bundles limited to 4’ long. Please use paper bags when possible. Paper bags are biodegradable and cost much less to remove. Paper bags are for sale at the Public Works and Administration Office for $1 each or you can purchase at a department store.
DITCH LEAVES VACUUM PICKUP: Beginning Monday, November 25, 2013. Public Works will be making the rounds in the leaf vacuum truck to collect loose leaves you rake from your ditch. There is no schedule for this option so bagging the leaves is better to keep them in place until the vacuum truck is in your section. Remember the vacuum truck is for leaves in your ditch only so please do not rake your whole yard in the ditch or discard sticks and other yard debris in the leaves collected from the ditches.
