LEAF COLLECTION INFORMATION
Ocean Pines Public Works and Waste Management will both aid in the collection. Current Waste Management customers may place up to four bags of leaves curbside for each scheduled pickup. This is in addition to regular trash pickup. Trash collection days for residents south of Route 90 are Tuesday and Friday. For residents north of Route 90, the collection days are Monday and Thursday. Waste Management will also pick up branches if they are tied in bundles no longer than 4 feet. Leaves and other yard debris bagged in paper bags will also be collected by Ocean Pines Public Works beginning Nov. 17. Paper Bags will be picked up on days opposite from Waste Management’s collection days. Only paper bags will be accepted, and there is no limit to the number of bags that residents may place curbside. Each section of Ocean Pines will be visited by Public Works at least once a week. Public Works will use this same schedule to vacuum ditch leaves that have been raked to the street. Yard leaves that have been raked to the street will not be picked up. These leaves must be placed in paper bags for collection. Ocean Pines residents may also bring leaves and yard debris in bulk or paper bags to the Public Works yard, located at 1 Firehouse Lane near the south station fire department. The yard will be open Monday through Saturday from Nov. 17 to Dec. 20 from 7 am to 3 pm. Residents with questions about leaf collection should contact Ocean Pines Public Works by calling 410-641-7425 or emailing Linda Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
